Microsoft TEAMS integration

We are just embarking on a pilot at my college to shift away from Moodle as a VLE and was wondering if anyone knows if or when Turnitin will create a plugin for this?? 

TEAMS seems to have the functionality to facilitate teaching and learning but the assessment side of things has some way to go...thoughts anyone?

  • Hi  Simon Kay, thank you for asking this question. Integration with Microsoft is something we're investigating here at Turnitin. Can you tell us more about your decision to migrate to Microsoft TEAMS from Moodle? It would be great to get an understanding of the workflows you're trying to support with this decision.

      Alyssa Vigil Hi Alyssa - well, there are so many reasons - I was hoping you would be looking at this - I feel it's' the general direction of the sector - migration to either Microsoft or Google. The best solution for us would be if you partnered Microsoft and created a 3rd party application that would sit in the TEAMS application. I would love to have a conversation with you about it so if you email me your number I could discuss in more detail???

  • I'm trying to find more information about this. Our school is very interested in using Teams as the primary LMS - moving away from Moodle. Turnitin is the key to this for our organisation.

    I have noticed this: https://educationblog.microsoft.com/en-us/2019/01/transform-classroom-time-with-13-new-microsoft-teams-updates-bett-2019-recap-2/

    And there is a lot of references to "coming soon" but little else. Can anyone at TII confirm progress either here or via PM? We use the Turnitin Tool for Moodle - very keen to move my organisation on to a better solution for the future!

      Shebeer Ahammed I have spoken to the Product Manager working on this and he tells me that we are currently have a beta programme running and that the integration will be available soon but we are unable to give you any definite dates at present.

  • We are a 365 BYOD school and use TEAMS as a secondary LMS. I am confused as to the announcement of Turnitin integration in Jan/Feb 2019 and documentation as recent as May 29 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/expand-teams-across-your-org/assignments-in-teams , but I cannot find any API or info on Turnitin to corroborate. Where is it? As mentioned above, I too saw documentation showing Turnitin as a check box used while creating an assignment. So does the api exist?

    • Brad Perrin-Smith Hi Brad, thank you for your interest in the integration! We are currently running a closed beta and working with Microsoft to define a date for availability. As this is currently early access you won't be able to find any information on setup just yet from Turnitin.

      If you are interested in finding out more about the integration itself our webinar can be seen here

       

      Please reach out to your Turnitin and Microsoft account manager for more information and to register your interest.
