Using Turnitin from within Canvas  for checking the originality of work and to use the incredible annotation tools is a great piece in our educational arsenal.  The question is, what kind of documents can a student submit to Turnitin?

Currently, the following document types are the only ones that Turnitin will check and accept. A special thanks to Shirley Petras for finding these for all of us!

  • Microsoft Word® (.doc / .docx)
  • OpenOffice (.odt) except Google Docs
  • WordPerfect®  (.wpd)
  • PostScript (.ps/.eps)
  • Adobe® PDF 
  • HTML 
  • Rich text format (.rtf)
  • Plain text (.txt)
  • Hangul Word Processor file (.hwp)
