Important to Read

To prevent students from creating duplicated accounts, the instructor can do the followings:

  • When creating a class on Turnitin, please inform your students with the class id & enrollment password of your class on the e-learning or via the BUE mail so they can enroll into it successfully.
  • Identify a period of time in which your students will enroll in your class & after this period passed, change the password secretly so that they won’t enroll again with a personal mail.
