On August 1st, 2017 Turnitin replaced Turnitin GradeMark (Turnitin Classic) with the new Turnitin Feedback Studio, which offers all the functionalities of Turnitin, but with a simplified, more intuitive interface.
While the workflow for the assignment creation, submission, grading and feedback remains the same, you will see a new interface when opening a paper in Turnitin, viewing Similarity Reports and inputting or receiving feedback.
To get acquainted with the upgraded Turnitin Feedback Studio you can:
- Try out an external,interactive demo
- Watch the external,Turnitin Classic vs Feedback Studio video

Request to enable LDB
Starting this term, if you need to enable Respondus LockDown Browser (LDB) for a current or future quiz, you will need to contact Ryerson's D2L faculty support team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team will be able to enable it for you.
A problem with copied LDB quizzes
LDB-enabled quizzes that were copied from another course shell will not work in the new course. Please contact Ryerson's D2L faculty support team at email@example.com - we will be happy to unlock these quizzes for you.
Our website has gone through some major changes this summer!
- All of the content was updated to be in-line with the new look and feel of D2L Brightspace.
- The website itself moved to a design that is more "responsive" - meaning that it can be viewed easily from devices of various sizes.
One result of these changes is that many of our links have changed. If you link to any of our documents from your website, course materials or D2L Brightspace shell, please check them to make sure they point to the correct page on the new site.
