Turnitin Releases New iPad App
Turnitin, the writing feedback and plagiarism checking service, has released a new iPad app. Feedback Studio for iPad gives students full access through a mobile device to Turnitin’s Feedback Studio program.
Students can submit papers, analyze similarity reports to check for originality and review instructor feedback on the go. An enhanced interface for instructors offers streamlined grading on and offline.

With the Feedback Studio app, institutions can ensure that students are not only able to complete and submit assignments on their iPads, but they also have immediate access to their instructors’ comments, feedback and grades whenever they need them, according to a news release. Such access may help students develop their writing skills.
College instructors and secondary grade teachers can use the app to provide feedback and make comments on student papers while they are out and about, the release said. The interface is cleaner, with clutter-free screens, and the process to view accounts and classes is simplified.
More information and a live demo of Feedback Studio for iPad will be presented during a free, 45-minute webcast Sept. 29 at 3 p.m. PST. To register for “No Feedback Left Behind: Feedback Studio for iPad,” visit the company’s website.
Users with an active Turnitin Classic or Feedback Studio account can download the iPad app from the App Store. More information on the app is on Turintin’s site.
