This was my first time attending the annual Turnitin User Summit and it gave me an opportunity to learn more about the latest products released. This was also an opportunity to find out if existing issues are being developed out the system.
To begin the conference Turnitin presented us with some statistics, as of November 2019:
- Turnitin Services are used in over 169 countries
- With over 29 million active users
- 1,040,917,465 papers have been submitted
This reflects on how many institutions are now dependant on Turnitin for, plagiarism detection, integrity checking, marking and grading.
They Road map for Turnitin focuses on improving the current product as well as the release of two new products, including Gradescope and the Authorship tool.
