From January 22–25, Turnitin is back in London, UK, for Bett 2020 - the global meeting place for education buyers. This year, the Turnitin team has developed even more tools that make a discernible difference in education. New authorship capabilities, first launched in 2019, was the first to help institutions investigate contract cheating, while a 2018 acquisition, Gradescope, has revolutionised instructor grading using machine learning. We’re delighted to have been shortlisted for a Bett Award in Higher Educator or Further Education Digital Services as a result of our newest offerings.
Interested in finding out more? From Wednesday to Friday of Bett 2020, we’ll be bringing back our Lightning Talks: 15-minute quickfire sessions on source credibility, the digital skills gap, and fantastic feedback. Visit us in Hall N1-19, Stand NM40 to discuss the ever-changing educational landscape and the role of technology in the classroom.
