The University is trialling a new tool called Turnitin Draft Coach, which allows students to run a grammar check and obtain Turnitin similarity reports on work during the writing process, using the Office 365 version of Microsoft Word. Please note, you must be using the browser-based version of Word and be logged in with your university email details.  

If you would like to try it, please watch this short video which explains how to install and use it. The install link can be found here. For more information about how to interpret Turnitin reports, please see this guide which is linked on the right-hand side of your Moodle sites, or speak to us, your Academic Skills Tutors, or your librarians. 

We want to know how useful this tool is, so please give us your feedback on this anonymous Padlet.
