About the presenter
Ann sits on the committee for academic integrity at her University and is recognized on campus as a Turnitin subject matter expert. She believes passionately in teaching and developing critical thinking and writing skills, and as a teacher of organizational behaviour and leadership, Ann deeply understands the importance of integrity and feedback in the real world. To meet these ends, she sees Turnitin as a useful teaching tool.
Many people in the NUS community are familiar with Turnitin, the plagiarism prevention tool for the undergraduate classroom.
NUS has added iThenticate to its plagiarism prevention portfolio. This plagiarism prevention tool, by the makers of Turnitin, is targeted at scholarly and professional plagiarism.
iThenticate enables academics, researchers and postgraduate students to check their own work. Unlike Turnitin, the submitted work is not added to a student database. This means that your submitted work does not become a source that other users' submissions are checked against.
Turnitin will remain for staff to check on students' work in a classroom situation. Unlike iThenticate, Turnitin also has additional features such as PeerMark.
The differences between iThenticate and Turnitin are summarised in the table below.
