• enable Turnitin assignments within the existing Canvas assignment workflow,
• access Turnitin’s plagiarism checking via the Canvas SpeedGrader,
• grade and provide feedback on Turnitin submissions within the Canvas SpeedGrader, and
• view Turnitin’s potential plagiarism indicators directly in the Canvas Gradebook.
