Managing Instructor and Student Notifications

Turnitin offers a number of notifications for students and instructors in Moodle that, by default, are turned on.

These notifications include the following:

 

  • Turnitin Assignment Non-Submitter Notifications: Allows instructors to send a notification to any students who have not yet submitted to an assignment.
     
  • Turnitin Assignment Instructor Digital Receipt Notifications: Instructors will receive a Moodle message and email notification when one of their students submits to an assignment.
     
  • Turnitin Assignment Digital Receipt Notifications: Students will receive a notification to confirm their submission.
     
  • Turnitin Plagiarism Plugin Digital Receipt Notifications: Students will receive a notification to confirm their submission.

 

Notifications are delivered to the Moodle message inbox as well as the email inbox. As an administrator, you may deactivate and reactivate this feature at any time.

 

SMTP configuration is required if you are using a version of Moodle Direct V2 prior to 2015040109. If SMTP settings are not configured whilst using this version of Moodle, students and instructors will not receive a digital receipts or submission notifications to their Moodle message inbox or their email inbox.

Visit Configuring Email SMTP Settings for guidance.

Deactivating and Reactivating Notifications

 

1. Scroll through of the Default Message Outputs page to begin amending the settings for Turnitin notifications.

 

 

2.

2a. To enable notifications, check the Enabled checkbox in the fair right-hand column is selected. This will change both the pop-up notification and Email settings to 'Permitted'. The defaults should be set as both 'Online' and 'Not online' by checking all checkboxes.

 

Further to its enablement, you can set the extent to which you'd like each type of notification to be enabled. Use the drop-down menus to permit, disallow, or force a notification.

 

Disallowed: The message will never be delivered via the chosen output (popup notification and/or email). The instructor is not allowed to change the personal preference for this combination of message and output.

Permitted: The message is allowed to be delivered via the chosen output (popup notification and/or email). Default preferences are set by administrators, but instructors can control this preference in their messaging preferences page (and change the suggested defaults).

Forced: The message will be delivered via the chosen output (popup notification and/or email). Instructors are not allowed to change the personal preference for this combination of message and output.

 

For each message type, set the Online and Not online defaults using the checkboxes to determine when you would like users to receive the notifications. 

 

Pop-up - Notification Online: User will receive pop-up notifications when they are online.
Pop-up Notification - Offline: User will receive pop-up notifications when they are offline.
Email - Online: User will receive an email when they are online.
Email - Offline: User will receive an email when they are offline.


2b. To disable notifications, uncheck the Enabled checkbox in the far right-hand column. This will change both the pop-up notification and Email settings to 'Disallowed' and gray out all defaults.

 

3. Click Save changes at the bottom of the page.
