    • a) Students will be able to access TurnItIn from the assignment link in Schoology
    • b) You can customize settings by clicking on “Settings”. If you then click on "Optional Settings", you will have the option to "Allow submissions of any type." This means students can upload a file, submit through Google Drive, etc. You may also "allow late submissions" which allows students to submit their work to TurnItIn after the due date.
