What do a sofa and a bus have in common? They are both places you can use the new Turnitin for iPad app to give your students really good feedback!
OK, so maybe you don’t imagine yourself on a bus… but a lot of you have been asking for an app to help you mark your students’ work at a time and place that suits you – so hopefully this will be exciting news.
This is fresh off the press so we’re just getting up to speed with the new features ourselves, but what we can say is that it looks good!
The app has lots of features to help you give your students really great feedback on their writing. You can view your students originality reports, grade with rubrics, and annotate with QuickMark, highlights, bubble, inline, voice comments, and more. You can even sync assignments to your device to carry on grading in those annoying no internet zones!
- You can find features information and training guides on the Turnitin website
- You can sign up to a 30-minute webcast hosted by Turnitin on Tuesday, 20.08.13 at 6pm – register for the Grade Anywhere: Turnitin for iPad to see a demo and hear more from one of the beta-users, Dr. Shannon Farris.
We have created a Quick Guide to Getting Started with the Turnitin for iPad App as you will need to change a few settings and generate an ‘access code’ to see assignment submissions in your courses. It’s a bit fiddly but you only need to do it once.
Let us know how you get on – we’d love to hear how and where you use the app to evaluate your students work and help them improve their academic writing skills.
