Turnitin, and How It Works in Canvas

Turnitin is the technology used to check the originality of  students' submissions to assignments, and is integrated into the Canvas Gradebook (i.e., the Speedgrader). To set up Turnitin for an existing assignment, and grade it, read the PDF:  Turnitin for Canvas via LTI  (revised December, 2015).  You can also watch a recording of a recent DAT webinar  that shows the procedures being performed.
