If you are an instructor who uses Canvas and want to upload a student’s paper directly to Turnitin, there are a few steps involved. The first part is to create a Turnitin web account, and the second part is to enable Quick Submit on that account:

  1. If you have never created a Turnitin assignment in Canvas before, you will need to do this to generate your Turnitin account before following the next steps. You do not need to publish the Turnitin assignment.
  2. Go to https://www.turnitin.com (warning: if you get “Connection was reset”, just refresh the page).
  3. Click on "Login," then "Forgot your password? Click Here."
  4. Enter your email address which you have set as default in Canvas. If you don't know which address you used, please email canvas.support@oregonstate.edu and they can provide that information.
  5. Enter your Last Name, then click Next.
  6. An email will be sent to your address with a link to reset your password.
  7. Reset your password by clicking on the link and following the instructions.
  8. You may also be prompted to choose a Secret Question for your account; if this generates an error, simply Continue and try your login.
  9. Then go back to https://www.turnitin.com and log in with your new password.
  10. Please click on the User Info tab at the top to see if your account Type is "Instructor."
  11. If not, set it to "Instructor", then refresh the page (or log out and log back in).
  12. Click on the User Info tab, and on the right hand side under Account Settings, find "Activate quick submit."
  13. Use the dropdown menu to select Yes, then scroll to the bottom of the page and click Submit.
  14. You should now see a Quick Submit tab on your Turnitin page which can be used to submit individual papers.
