If TA is also the Instructor of Record
Note: An instructor of record is typically listed in the Penn State Academic schedule.
If TA is NOT an Instructor of Record
If the above option is not available (e.g. because the TA is a student grader), then the instructor of record has the following options.
- Use Turnitin within Canvas and ensure all TAs have the role of Teacher. This is the only option for multiple TAs in one section.
- To add TAs outside of Canvas the instructor of record should contact the IT Service Desk with the TA names and Access Account User IDs. Please allow one business day for requests to be processed.
Also note that these accounts may be deactivated after the end of the semester.
If an instructor uses Turnitin outside Canvas, then once an instructor receives confirmation that a TA has instructor level access, that person will need to be added to a section within a master course. See the TAs and Master Class page for details.
If an instructor uses Turnitin inside Canvas, then the instructor can just add each TA as an editor. No master courses should be used with Canvas. Converting a standard Turnitin course to a master course when using Canvas will break the connection between Turnitin and Canvas.
