MiraCosta College has an unlimited license to Turnitin, GradeMark, and Peer Review, and Turnitin is available within Canvas. No separate login or password is required for faculty or students.
As of August 2019, Turnitin indicates that both the “classic” and the newer Turnitin LTI 2.0 Canvas Plagiarism Framework methods for using Turnitin with Canvas will be supported indefinitely. The primary difference between the two tools is that the “Classic” (1.0) Turnitin integration is best used if faculty prefer to use Turnitin for grading and feedback; the Turnitin 2.0 Framework is preferred by faculty who want Turnitin for plagiarism prevention but like to use the Canvas grading and feedback tools.

Testing a Turnitin Assignment with your MCC Sample Student
Turnitin is an LTI tool that is globally installed on our Canvas system. LTI tools are not native to Canvas so they will not work in the internal Canvas Student View. You must log off of Canvas, as an instructor, then log on with your MCC Sample Student account. Now you will be able to experience a Turnitin assignment within your Canvas course as a student.
