Submitting an Assessment through Turnitin

Turnitin Feedback Studio is integrated within VU Collaborate. If enabled by a teacher, any assessment submitted via the Assessment Dropbox will automatically be processed through Turnitin. 

Generating a Turnitin report can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 24 hours once a document has been submitted.
