Turnitin Standalone Service in read-only mode.

Turnitin standalone platform (https://elearn.wits.ac.za/turnitin/) was phased out on 31 December 2013 and is only available in read-only mode.

You can access all your prevoius work but it will not be possible to upload new submissions.

Turnitin standalone service was ended for a number of reasons:

  1. The standalone offers a parallel service, the same functionality is available on Wits-e / Sakai.

  2. Students have been misusing the standalone service

Turnitin’s services have fully been integrated into Wits-e/Sakai. This means that both students and academics can use Turnitin when using the assignments 2 tool. Wits-e now offers similar plagiarism detection functionality as well as assessment and grading functionalities. In other words, the Wits-e / Sakai platform offers academics more advantages and well integrated tools that support the process of plagiarism detection.

eLearning Support and Innovation Unit (eLSI) offers training on the use of Turnitin. For training and further information please contact: elearn@wits.ac.za.
