One of my first assignments when joining the Learning Technology Unit was to support my late colleague Lorry West with his Turnitin project. Lorry had been piloting Turnitin throughout the 2008/09 academic year and needed assistance with developing help materials for those about to join the second stage of the pilot which included an online helpsite, leaflets and required that I also went into classrooms to demo the software and talk about plagiarism.

In January 2011 Turnitin via Moodle was adopted as the main submission point for all written assignments for the whole of Solent. As a team we only had 8 weeks to develop materials to support all staff and students with using it. This involved building staff & student online training sites (with videos) and hands-on workshops.
