Turnitin turns it up

Introducing Turnitin, TAFE Queensland’s new and improved anti-plagiarism system. Launching on 21 February 2022 Turnitin will replace Ouriginal as TAFE Queensland’s plagiarism detection and checker.

Turnitin has been designed to help students just like you to

  • identify unintentional plagiarism in your writing
  • remove unintentional plagiarism through improved paraphrasing, synthesising and citation skills
  • avoid plagiarism in the future through improved academic writing skills and an increased understanding of what it means to write with integrity.

The Turnitin platform will allow you to do everything you’re used to doing in Ouriginal including:

  • upload your draft assignments for checking by Turnitin (prior to submission to your teacher for grading)
  • review Turnitin reports for your submitted assignments. 

Turnitin will be fully integrated with Connect to ensure the process of submitting and reviewing assessments is easy and efficient, providing an improved experience for you, our students.

Additional features

Turnitin also includes a soon-to-be-launched feature called ‘Draft Coach’. This feature will provide you with instant, formative feedback on your writing and citations while you’re drafting assignments in Google Docs or Microsoft Word. Draft Coach is currently still in BETA but will be rolled out as soon as it becomes available.

Help and training

If you’re using the system of the first time, or if you need a refresher, you’ll find a range of training resources and user guides for the new Turnitin platform on the Connect Help website.
