Turnitin LTI 2.0 Canvas Plagiarism Framework

Turnitin is available within Canvas and offers a tighter integration between a Canvas assignment and Turnitin. No separate login or password is required for faculty or students.

Eventually it is expected that Turnitin will only be available via the method described here. MiraCosta College has an unlimited license to Turnitin, GradeMark, and Peer Review.

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.

Arc Demo and Conversation for MiraCosta Faculty (Thursday, April 23 at 6pm)

Hello Faculty Colleagues,

As we wrap up the semester and our pilot period for our new video management system, Arc, we want to share an opportunity to learn more about this tool. 

The folks at Arc have agreed to host a demo/conversation designed for our faculty at MiraCosta. The session will include:

1. A quick overview of the product and Arc basics.
2. One to two features a faculty member can implement now at the end of the semester and/or soon in preparation for Summer and Fall courses.
3. An update on status of quizzes in ARC. Where are they now? What new features were integrated this semester since we started the pilot in January? 

Join us on Thursday, April 25 at 6 pm. ( Click here to enter the meeting )

One Word Agenda – Brown Bag Series Wednesdays from 1:00pm to 1:30pm in the Pedagogical Lounge OC1252

So I was not alone last week for Digital Learning Day – thank you for that! I was fortunate to have some great conversations with colleagues and was reminded that we just don’t do that enough. My proposal – let’s do more of that. Often we are guided by detailed agendas and lesson plans, but some of the best professional development can come from a conversation.

If you are available, please join me for the One Word Agenda Brown Bag Series in the Pedagogical Lounge (Did you know we have a Pedagogical Lounge? And a Teaching and Learning Center?). This is not a workshop. This is not for Flex. You can bring your lunch. We can discuss the topic for the day. The best part is we don’t have to do any of those things if we don’t want to. However, I still hope to see you there! 😊

CCC Digital Learning Day – Archives are Live!

CCC Digital Learning Day - Archives are Live!

CCC Digital Learning Day was filled with inspiration! They had emotional reflections from a student about a video creation assignment, a call to action for information literacy, advice for online instructors from students, discussions about the value of students interacting with a global audience, and ended the day with a visualization of our international audience on a Google Map!

The button below will take you to the archives and many rich resources to support your teaching and learning innovations.
