New to Turnitin: Cloud Submit

Cloud Submit allows users to submit files to Turnitin assignments from Google Drive™ and Dropbox—two of the most widely used document storage services.

whatsnew-cloud-submitThe addition of Cloud Submit makes submitting work to assignments more convenient for instructors and students as their authoring and document management moves increasingly to the cloud.

Students and instructors may now use Cloud Submit as they go through the assignment submission process. When choosing from Google Drive or Dropbox, users will sign in to the respective service and then select which file to submit.

Files stored in Google Drive or Dropbox in the following formats will be accepted by Turnitin: MS Word; WordPerfect; PostScript; PDF; HTML; RTF; OpenOffice (ODT); Hangul (HWP); PowerPoint (PPT); and plain text. Users can also submit files authored in Google's "Document" format; these will be converted to PDFs during the submission process.

Cloud Submit is not available for multiple file or zip file submissions. It may not be available when accessing Turnitin via an LMS integration if the submission process is initiated within the LMS, though we do plan to add this capability to Turnitin's Blackboard Direct integration in coming months.

Also in this release, we:

  • extended GradeMark rubrics to support more than 10 scale values (allowing use of more evaluation standards like 0-10 based rubrics)
  • added language support for Russian and Polish

Some features may not be available or applicable in some LMS integrations.
