In the window that pops up, enter the Consumer Key, Shared Secret, and Launch URL, then click SUBMIT. Turnitin can now be accessed from all Institution Courses.

Instructor: Enable Turnitin in Assignments
STEP1: Once Turnitin is configured by admins, you can enable Turnitin in assignments. In your institution course, create a GradeBook item. Select “Submit a File/Assignment” as the Submission Type and then a checkbox will appear that says “Enable Turnitin”. Check this box to use Turnitin for this assignment. Finish filling out the rest of the form.
Note: You will not be able to set up a rubric for assignments that have enabled Turnitin. You will have to create the rubric through Turnitin.
STEP2: After creating the assignment, a popup will appear asking you go to DropBox. This must be done in order to activate Turnitin on the assignment.
Note: If you are in the middle of creating a task, DropBox will open in a new window so that you don't lose any progress on your current task.
STEP3: After clicking on the GO TO DROPBOX button, DropBox will open in a new tab with the assignment selected from the Item Name dropdown. This automatically activates Turnitin on your assignment. Students can now start making their submissions on the assignment.
Note: You can click on the Settings tab to view and edit more controls (such as Feedback Release Date, Allow late submissions etc) and create a rubric.
