Reminder:  Turnitin, the web-based utility that helps faculty and students assess the originality of student work is available.

The best place to begin is to self-enroll in the MCCD Turnitin Canvas course.  This course includes a wealth of training materials and resources to help you get started.   Please visit https://learn.maricopa.edu/enroll/KP9ARY to enroll in the course.
If you are using Turnitin within the Canvas LMS environment, see the following helpful documentation
