Step 2 - Create a Class

The creation of a class is the first step in allowing students to submit their assignments through Turnitin. Once you have created a class, Turnitin will generate a Class ID and Enrolment Password which you can then give to your students.

Your class name should be the name of the class you are teaching - the same used in the course outline.

Remember: don't make your password too tricky.
