IMPORTANT: No new Turnitin v1 assignment inboxes after the 22nd March 2016

By Domi C Sinclair, on 26 February 2016

Earlier this month it was announced that during the Moodle summer upgrade UCL will be moving to a single version of Turnitin, as Turnitin v1 assignments will no longer be supported by Moodle or Turnitin.

To help ease this transition we will be preventing the creation of new assignments using the Turnitin v1 activity on Tuesday 22nd March.

After this date, students will continue to be able to submit to existing Turnitin v1 assignments, but it will not be possible for Tutors and Course Administrators to create new Turnitin v1 assignments.

This decision has been taken to prevent anyone accidentally setting up an assignment with Turnitin v1 that will then not work after the 27th July 2016 (when we complete the Moodle upgrade).

If you need to set up a new Turnitin assignment after the 22nd March 2016, please use the Turnitin v2 activity.

Instructions on how to set up an assignment with Turnitin v2 can be found in the UCL Moodle Resource Centre wiki.
