Turnitin services, including Originality Check, Peermark, and Grademark, may be unavailable during a scheduled maintenance period on Saturday, March 5th, 2016, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM (CT).
During this outage window, students should not submit files to a Dropbox folder that has Turnitin enabled, and instructors should not create new Dropbox folders with Turnitin enabled.
Instructors are encouraged to modify assignment due dates either before or at least several hours after the scheduled maintenance window. If possible, it’s also advised that instructors change the end date on all Dropbox folders that are utilizing Turnitin so that students won’t inadvertently submit during the outage window.
Please note, any Dropbox folders in a D2L course that are currently NOT utilizing the Turnitin Originality Check, ending before the outage window, or starting after the outage window do NOT have to be altered.
If you have any questions or concerns about this outage, please contact UW-W D2L Support.
