Configure LTI in Turnitin

  1. If you are part of a global institution, log in into your Turnitin account via turnitin.com. Alternatively, log in to turnitinuk.com if you are part of a UK institution.
  2. Ensure that Administrator view is enabled from the dropdown menu at the top of the screen. If Instructor or Student is selected, please change to Administrator.

  4. Select the LTI API button to open the configuration page.

Unconfigured integrations will have an unlit status button. A yellow status button indicates a partially configured integration. A green status button indicates a fully configured integration.

  1. Fill out the three required fields:
    • Create a shared key containing 8 alphanumerical characters. It is recommended to include at least one number and one letter.

The shared key is used during the configuration process in your LMS. You can always return to Turnitin to find your shared key if you happen to forget it.

  1. Your institution’s IP Address or default IP address: 255.255.255.255

  2. An error callback URL or the default URL:

    • If you are in the US: https://www.turnitin.com/api_error.asp

    • If you are in the UK: https://www.turnitinuk.com/api_error.asp

  3. To enable Turnitin to provide your institution with optimal support, enter the name and email address of a technical contact who is responsible for maintaining your integration.
  4. Check the box to agree that you understand that providing any phone number, URL, or test login information is optional but may be requested by Turnitin.
  5. Finalize the configuration by selecting Save.

Configure Turnitin in an LMS

To use the Turnitin LTI 1.1 API, administrators must provide the following items within the LMS LTI configuration screen:

  • URL based on your location:
    • If you are in the US: https://api.turnitin.com/api/lti/1p0/assignment

    • If you are in the UK: https://api.turnitinuk.com/api/lti/1p0/assignment

  • Account ID (referred to as the consumer key)
    • This allows an LMS to correctly integrate with a Turnitin account. Account IDs can be found on the left-hand side of the account name on the administrator homepage in Turnitin.
  • Shared Key (configured in the previous section)
    • The shared secret key is used to verify the integrity of requests sent from the institution’s LMS account to the institution’s Turnitin account. The shared secret key can be any word or alphanumeric 8-character text string, containing at least one letter and one number. The shared secret key entered in Turnitin must be identical to the shared secret key entered within the LMS. To be clear, both keys must match in order for access to be granted, otherwise, the integration will not work.
  • Allow the LMS to send the user email address
    • This is required in order to launch the Turnitin Tool and ensures that the LMS and Turnitin users are mapped properly.

Please be aware that the terms used within the LMS can differ from the terms used in Turnitin.
