Maintained by John McGettrick, Paul Dawson, Alex McLarty, David Winn, David Hatton, Jennifer Earl
Turnitin's Moodle Direct v2 integration activity module is a standalone Moodle module with the aim of representing the full suite of Turnitin's features within the standard Moodle workflow. The module is an upgrade on the previous Turnitin plugin and is developed and maintained iParadigms the creators of Turnitin.
Moodle Direct V2 is the latest version of the Moodle Direct integration for Turnitin. Moodle Direct V2 installs separately to the original Turnitin Moodle Direct plugin within Moodle so that it can be used in parallel.
