How do I create a new assignment with Turnitin?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
You can enable Turnitin as part of a new Canvas assignment. Turnitin is enabled on a per-assignment basis in Canvas. However, Turnitin must be enabled by your institution at the account level for it to be available in your course. Contact your Canvas Administrator for more details.
