- adding a new class in turnitin.aalto.fi is not possible
- if a teacher logs in to turnitin.aalto.fi, the user account may drop from Aalto account of Turnitin. In that case the teacher can not add a Turnitin assignment in MyCourses either as it ends up getting an error notification. If this happens, a teacher has to contact firstname.lastname@example.org in order to get his/her user account restored.

Viewing a match of a student paper as a teacher
Viewing a student's paper as a source of a match in an similarity (originality) report has been possible for a teacher only if the paper had been submitted in some of her own courses. A teacher have had a possibility to send a request to view the paper. The request is sent automatically to the teacher (or teachers) of the workspace where the student paper has been submitted.
From March 28th the practise has been changed: viewing student paper matches inside Aalto University are allowed without sending a viewing request. Teacher may still get viewing requests from teachers outside Aalto University if matches are found compared to student papers submitted in Aalto University.
New Turnitin versions
A new version of a Turnitin assignment is available in MyCourses after MyCourses version release on June 14th 2016. Turnitin activities that were added before the release remain as they were, only their activity type is seen as "Turnitin assignment (V1)". Also a new view, called Feedback Studio, is available at Turnitin end by clicking a link. A user can switch back to the classic Turnitin view at any moment. Respectively, you can switch back to Feedback Studio where originality check and assessment tools are seen in the same view instead of separate tabs. Aalto University Turnitin instructions will be updated by the beginning of the academic year 2016-17.
Service requests or issues concerning new Turnitin versions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
See a demo video of Feedback Studio.
Note: Turnitin Assignment 2 includes tools for peer assessing, but they are not available in MyCourses until further notice because of perceived bugs.

Copying / importing a Turnitin assignment -activity causes an issue that can be fixed
Courses for the academic year 2015-2016 are being prepared in MyCourses. Many workspaces
in Moodle are imported to MyCourses Sandbox or workspaces in MyCourses Sandbox are imported to the final course workspaces.
Importing a Turnitin assignment activity causes an issue, that fortunately can be fixed. The case has been described in Turnitin support > Faculty Frequently Asked Questions and Known issues
