TurnItIn News

Submit and Evaluate PowerPoint

Students are often asked to demonstrate their knowledge and communications skills in various disciplines by making presentations. Turnitin now supports student work submitted in the powerful and popular PowerPoint presentation format. Turnitin instructors can check originality, provide feedback using QuickMark comments, voice comments and rubrics, and include the submission in a peer review exercise. Turnitin converts the PowerPoint slide deck into a static PDF, leaving all text and images in their original format but leaving out dynamic touches like embedded video and animations. Turnitin support for PowerPoint is available through all integrations, and to instructors in the Turnitin for iPad® app (http://www.turnitin.com).
