Turnitin goes red and yellow and pink and blue….

Turnitin have released a new feature which enables you to highlight text in different colours – something that has been asked for during the training sessions.

When you go into GradeMark and highlight some text, click on the highlighted text – which is how you used to add a comment to selected text rather than to a single place – and you now get the option to choose in which colour you want the selected text to be highlighted.

You could use this function for different markers – with moderators or externals always using a different colour – or for different categories of feedback comment – such as presentation etc.

I have been working in the Educational Technology field within Higher Education for eleven years. A big part of my job is finding new and innovative ways of integrating technology into current teaching and learning methodology. This can include assisting academic staff with Virtual Learning Environments/Learning Management Systems (Blackboard), implementing specific software packages, maximising current technologies and championing new ones. I find this profession both riveting and rewarding. I really enjoy life on the cutting edge, but I also enjoy being able to help staff achieve small and meaningful efficiencies; sometimes that makes all the difference.
