Resolved: Turnitin Receipt Issues

Turnitin have informed us that all receipts are now being delivered to Office365 email accounts as usual.

Any receipts that students have not received via email up to 15/02/17 will not be resent. Students can still download the digital receipt manually, information on how to do this can be found in our previous blog posting: https://vleservice.wordpress.com/2017/02/14/intermittent-email-receipts-from-turnitin/

If students don’t receive an email receipt within 24 hours of a submission on or after 16/02/17 then please contact the IT Service Desk so we can follow up the issue.

We are experiencing an issue with Turnitin where students are unable to submit to assignments after the due date.

The issue is affecting other institutional user and Turnitin are working on a resolution. In the meantime if you need to make a submission after the due date, or have an extension where the due date has passed send the file to your school who can submit it on your behalf.

This issue does not impact on submissions made before the due date.
