CSU, Chico currently uses Turnitin as its primary plagiarism prevention software but it can also facilitate peer review and provides for rich mark-up of student submissions. Turnitin integrates into Blackboard Learn. No registration or passwords are required to use it inside the learning management system.
Turnitin contains three components:
Checks student submissions for originality against Turnitin.com's database of billions of journals, internet pages and previously submitted student work. Turnitin automatically generates an Originality Report for the faculty member, and also for students, depending on the settings determined by the instructor.
Enables instructors to grade student papers online using standard or customized marks that appear directly on the student's paper.
Engages students in the writing process by providing structured, anonymous feedback of other student's written work.
You can use any of the above products on its own, or use them together to provide evaluation of the student submission(s).

Since students own the copyrights to their works (in most cases), please keep in mind that they should be informed that a copy of their paper will be sent to Turnitin.com and become part of Turnitin's repository. For students who don't agree to this, Turnitin suggest that you offer alternatives, such as: "the student could be required to turn in a photocopy of the first page of all reference sources used, an annotated bibliography, and a one page paper reflecting on their research methodology."
