HERE IS SOME GUIDANCE ON HOW TO LOGIN TO THE TURNITIN THING. IT'S AN EMAIL FROM THEIR TECH SUPPORT. IF THIS WORKS, LET ME KNOW. IF IT DOESN'T, PLEASE LET ME KNOW TOO. I AM TRYING TO FIND A BETTER SOLUTION HERE! :)
FROM THEIR TECH SUPPORT:
We have had some students contact us regarding invalid pin codes for Turnitin. If you please have the students contact us if they find that they have a pin code that is not registering properly. I would ask you to have them go to the following web site and choose to Chat or send an e-mail to us. Depending on the time of day Chat is available. We will take care of this issue promptly and if I am out of town my back-up will be able to answer the e-mails, if the students e-mail us through the web site.
And here is where you login:
http://insite.thomson.com/ Go to the LOGIN link.
And, again, the password is ethics and the course # is on the syl.

New info from Friday afternoon:
Some codes will appear invalid due to a simple typo. If you would like to tell your students if their pin code for Turnitin is not working to try correcting the code first, and then if the code is still not working then to contact technical support it may save your students a lot of time.
If a student finds that their code is invalid have them check the letters after the dash in the pin code to see if there are any instances of the letter “S” in the code. If there are, have the student change the letter “S” to a “$” and this may correct the code and make it valid so that the student can register.
Buying a code online (new info):
Students can purchase codes online but the pin code will be shipped from our warehouse. Currently we do not offer Turnitin pin codes as an instant access pin code. If students need to purchase the pin code they can do the following.
