Making the Most of Turnitin & Feedback Studio

Turnitin and Feedback Studio are powerful pieces of software that can appear complex at first. We have created a series of guides to walkthrough all of the settings.

Turnitin in its simplest form will accept online submissions for students.

Turnitin also contains Feedback Studio which is used for online marking, and PeerMark which allows students to review peers' submissions.
