TurnItIn Quicksubmit workshop

Three faculty members attended this workshop on Nov 18th. Within 30 minutes, they were able to set up, search for, submit, and see the results of the TII “originality” (plagiarism) report. Now, when they wish to do a quick check of a paper, they just log in, click the Quicksubmit tab, and upload or copy and paste the student paper.
