Turnitin have just released a new version of their iPad app: Turnitin Feedback Studio for iOS.
Actually, it’s no longer strictly an iPad app, as you can also install it on your iPhone or iPod Touch – although we don’t recommend marking student essays on a really small screen.
Existing iPad app users
Please ensure that you have finished marking and sync’d all downloaded papers before updating your app.
If you are already a user of the app, and have added one or more Blackboard courses to your ‘Class List’ in the app, you can for the time being continue to mark submissions on those courses without updating the app.
However you will need to update to the new version before you can mark work submitted to any other Blackboard courses.
There is a revised method for connecting up Turnitin assignments in Blackboard to the App.
Instead of generating an Access Code in order to access a Blackboard course via the app, you now request a link to be sent to your email address.
To make use of this link, you must be able to access that email on your iPad.
This process is a more practical solution. It replaces the need to have your iPad to hand when generating the code on your desktop, and then having to type in the long letter code.
The Release Notes also list a number of bug fixes and minor enhancements.
