Two members of the Learning Systems (LS) Team, Rajneel Totaram and Varunesh Rao attended the TurnItIn User group meeting in Brisbane, Australia on the 1st of June, 2015. TurnItIn is a cloud based service utilised by the University to determine similarities in the work submitted on MOODLE by students.
The meeting was held at the University of Queensland and the LS team had the opportunity to discuss their experiences and plans with other Turnitin users from around the region. After the User group meeting, the team had a meeting with Anna Borek, a manager from TurnItIn.
Discussions were centered on support and response from TurnItIn, issues with the TurnItIn plugins for MOODLE and the possibility of acquiring new features such as bulk download of TurnItIn reports for instructors and enhancements to certain administrative functions.
