TurnItIn: In Fall 2016, LBCC conducted a faculty pilot program of Turnitin (a plagiarism detection software). It has been confirmed that we will be adopting Turnitin and therefore we are currently in the process of purchasing and implementing a site-wide license. This process does take some time, yet we expect Turnitin to be officially available through our Leaning Management System (both Moodle & Canvas) in Fall 2017.
Please contact the Director of Instructional Technology & Distance Learning if you have questions or suggestions for implementation.
