Teachers inform students when the Turnitin assignment is used. The student cannot use Turnitin if a teacher does not provide a Turnitin assignment. The submitted work (file upload) should be a text file (doc, docx, txt, rtf or pdf). OpenOffice formats are not suitable, also non-standard PDF:s. Documents that include only picture and no text are rejected. In order to speed up the process, the teachers may advise to remove pictures and tables from your work.
