Turnitin is integrated with a large number of learning platforms (CMSs / LMSs / VLEs / SISs). Several have partnered with Turnitin for broad use within the Turnitin community. Partner Integrations are available to institutions that purchase a Turnitin license with integrations enabled.
Turnitin has partnered with most learning platforms to provide a unified customer experience.
We have a variety of development efforts and initiatives to improve our integrations and APIs.

Where can I download the plug-ins?
Plug-ins developed and managed by the Turnitin team are available for download from within the Turnitin administrative interface. These include the Blackboard, Moodle, and Angel plug-ins. The remaining partner plug-ins are available directly from the partner organization.
Who can download the plug-ins?
Only the Account Administrator can download the plug-ins. Once you have purchased an account with us, you will automatically be given administrator privileges.
Where are the installation instructions?
The installation instructions are available on the platform integration pages. Choose your platform from the list above.
Can I install the plug-in on a server that is behind a firewall?
The server you install the plug-in on needs to be accessible by our range of web servers. If you open up your firewall to our range of IP addresses, this should allow your servers to be in contact with Turnitin servers:

Our institution is using multiple instances of an LMS with the Turnitin plug-in/integration. Is there anything that we need to do?
It is okay to use the Turnitin plug-in on multiple instances of your LMS, but for each instance of an LMS with the Turnitin plug-in, it should be configured with a different account ID. Here are the steps to do so:
- Login to Turnitin as the administrator of your institution's account.
- Under the main account, create a sub-account for each instance of the LMS for which you would like to use the integration.
- Configure each of the sub-accounts to use the proper LMS by going through the normal process (e.g. clicking the button in the "integrations" column for that account and configuring it properly).
- Configure the plug-in for the LMS with the proper account IDs and shared secret key that were created in step 2 and configured in step 3.
How do I retain Turnitin data when migrating to a new LMS server?
Turnitin uses LMS IDs or database primary key IDs (PKIDs) to associate Turnitin users, courses and assignments in most integrations. When migrating to a new LMS server, upgrading an LMS server, or making any changes to the system which would result in deleting or changing existing database primary keys, you should backup your existing LMS IDs for users, courses and assignments. This information is required by our support team to restore your previous data. Prior to upgrading your system, please contact Turnitin support.
