Why does our institution need to migrate from LTI 1.1 to LTI 1.3
As part of Turnitin's commitment to providing the best customer experience and helping you get the most out of our solutions, we are encouraging our customers who have LTI 1.1 currently integrated in Moodle to move to LTI 1.3. This move provides additional security improvements as well as additional enhancements such as easier assignment creation and better grade pass back service.
It is important to remember that there is not a hard deadline to move to LTI 1.3 and LTI 1.1 will still be supported by both Moodle and Turnitin in the near future. If you have any other Turnitin integrations installed in your Moodle environment (i.e. Plagiarism Plugin or Direct V2), this move does not affect them.
To learn more about LTI 1.3, please see Turnitin Feedback Studio & LTI integrations. You may also view our comparison chart of the integrations that we offer to our Moodle customers that use Feedback Studio.
What are the end of support dates?
There are no end of support dates for LTI 1.1 by either Turnitin or Moodle in the near future. As such, you can change your integration when it works best for your school and academic schedule.
How does this affect Turnitin LTI 1.1 assignments in my past courses?
You and your students will still have access to past LTI 1.1 assignments.
Please be aware that if submissions were made to an LTI 1.1 assignment but were not graded yet, after the transition to LTI 1.3, the grades given to those submissions will not pass to the gradebook. For submissions made to that same assignment after the transition to LTI 1.3, those grades will pass back. As such, it is recommended that all grading of past LTI 1.1 assignments be completed before transitioning. You can go into the Moodle gradebook and manually enter in grades if needed.
How does this affect new Turnitin LTI 1.3 assignments created in my current courses?
Because the LTI 1.3 integration is deep linking, creating the Turnitin assignment via the Add an activity or resource is a more streamlined process (resulting in less clicking and duplication of assignment information in both Turnitin and Moodle). For more information, view our guidance on how to create a Moodle LTI 1.3 assignment.
What are the enhancements that I will gain with LTI 1.3?
- Overall improved user interface for you (and your students) including seeing at a glance which students have submitted or not to the assignment via the Assignment Inbox
- Easier assignment creation workflow
- Paper deletion request workflow
- Access to the Assignment Copy tool
- Access to additional LTI 1.3 assessment types when they become available
- Ability to resync grades to the LMS gradebook as needed
- Access to assignment level insights within the LTI inbox including robust assignment analytics and Flags
What changes to existing workflows do I need to be aware of?
There is no change to the existing workflow.
Please note that dropped or deactivated students will be removed from the Turnitin assignment inbox. They will also be dropped from the course via turnitin.com (or turnitinuk.com). If you need to see a submission made by students that have been dropped from your course, please contact your Turnitin admin. They will work with Turnitin Support to provide a copy of the Feedback Studio report/submission as a secured file.
How does this affect Turnitin LTI 1.1 assignments that have been copied from past courses into current courses?
Past LTI 1.1 assignments will become LTI 1.3 assignments when the integration is updated. As such, when they are copied to another course, they will be LTI 1.3 assignments. Please refer to these guides for using Turnitin assignment copy and for LMS course copy recommendations.
What happens to QuickMarks, rubrics, and PeerMark questions that I created?
Your QuickMarks, rubrics and grading forms, and PeerMark questions that have been saved will be available to you for your new LTI 1.3 assignments. You can also export QuickMarks and rubrics and grading forms and import them as needed. Below are links for doing that:
If there is an issue with accessing them, please contact Turnitin support for assistance.
