Feedback Studio with D2L comparison chart

Turnitin has different integrations with D2L Brightspace that allow instructors to choose which workflow and tools work best to fulfill the needs and objectives of their assignment. If you are a Feedback Studio customer, the LTI integration and the V2 integration are designed to work alongside each other and therefore can be set up in the same D2L Brightspace environment. In addition, instructors can use both integrations in their course at the same time, using the LTI workflow for one assignment but the V2 workflow for another.

The V2 integration is designed to work within the D2L Assignment workflow while the LTI integration works within the Content section of D2L Brightspace as an External Tool. Below is a chart to compare the integrations and their functions.

Please note that with the move to LTI 1.3 as the industry standard, the LTI 1.3 integration is recommended over the LTI 1.1 integration. If you are currently using the LTI 1.1 integration, you may want to consider moving to LTI 1.3. Please check out our Migration Hub for recommendations.
