Support for Internet Explorer 8 Ends in July

Internet Explorer 8 iconMany companies and services, including Microsoft and Google, have or will be dropping support of older browsers and operating systems in 2014 so they can focus on modern user experiences including HTML 5, touch and offline capabilities.

At Turnitin, we are continually improving the experience of providing rich feedback on student work. As the internet, web browsers, devices, and Turnitin all evolve, Turnitin will follow the industry by ending support for Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) browser starting in July 2014.

Come July 1, 2014, we will no longer test or fix features and bugs found only in Internet Explorer 8. This does not mean that Turnitin will suddenly stop working in IE8, only that we can no longer guarantee full functionality long term. We hope that this six month notice will provide Internet Explorer 8 users time to prepare and move to a current version of one of these supported industry standard browsers:

Internet Explorer 9 | Firefox | Chrome | Safari

With this change Turnitin will start working towards full compatibility with the touchscreen capabilities of browsers for document interaction (leaving marks and comments). Users can already navigate to certain aspects of the Turnitin service via touch, for example to submit files or modify assignment settings. For a full touch compatible grading experience, if you have an iPad®, please try the new Turnitin for iPad app available in the App Store for instructor use.
