A master class enables instructors to share the classes with TAs or co-instructors throughout sections. The master class instructor can set up sections for the other instructors. These instructors are referred to in the master/section class system as Teaching Assistants (TA’s).
Each TA or co-instructor can only access his/her single section of a master class; but the master class instructor can access all of the submissions to every section.
The creation of a class is the first step to access & use Turnitin. A class is equal to course & the instructor should create a single class for each course & expire each one at the end of sem. according to the nature of the assignment.
9. Now you can view your class on your homepage.
Students will not be able to enroll in the Master Class directly, they must enroll in a section class which must be created separately, after creating the Master Class & then they can be informed with the section ID & enrollment password.
New sections are manually created only by the master class instructor. Each TA/co-instructor can be assigned to one section.
1. Click on the +Section link to add a new section.
2. Enter the first name, last name & Email address of the TA/co-instructor, then Click Submit.
3. Enter a name for the section (TA's or co-instructor's name) and enrollment key, then click Submit.
A pop up window will appear with the Class/Section ID and enrollment key for each section. (This should be sent to the students).
The assigned TA/co-instructor will receive an email from Turnitin (either in inbox or Junk folders) welcoming them to the class, or with details on how they can create a Turnitin account.
Within a master class, you as a master class instructor can set up assignments or in each section as well. If the assignments are set up within the master class, the master class instructor will need to "push" the assignments to the sections.
Note: If you select the "Push Assignment Dates" check box, the Master Class instructor will push the assignment dates set in the assignment creation process. In case of deselecting the "Push Assignment Dates" check box, the TA assigned for each section should set the assignment dates before students in each of those sections can submit to the assignment.
Note: By default, all sections are marked to receive the assignment. To not have the assignment pushed to a section remove the check mark from the check box before clicking submit. The assignment will not be pushed to that section.
The master class does not allow students to enroll. Students can be enrolled into the sections of the master class in the same ways as students enrolling into standard classes and will see each section as a separate class.
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 successfully using their BUE mails within a period of time, then change the password secretly so that they won’t enroll again using other accounts.
