Indianapolis, Ind.–Aug. 29, 2006–ANGEL Learning, recognized innovator of enterprise e-learning software and services, and Turnitin, the recognized standard in online plagiarism prevention, today announced the availability of the ANGEL – Turnitin integration. The seamless integration of simply powerful ANGEL LMS 7 with Turnitin’s anti-plagiarism software enables ANGEL users to access Turnitin without leaving the ANGEL environment.

“The new ANGEL – Turnitin integration makes life so much easier for our faculty and students,” said Julie Kiernan, ANGEL administrator, Soka University of America. “They no longer have to log onto an external site and maintain and remember usernames and passwords. Now when faculty want to use Turnitin to check for plagiarism, they can do it right from within ANGEL. In one click of a mouse, our faculty can insert a Turnitin dropbox into a course. As we train faculty on this new integration they are really amazed at how much simpler using Turnitin is now. Thank you ANGEL Learning for once again not only providing a great service but going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure the service is top notch.”

ANGEL’s open design enables easy integration with complementing technologies allowing ANGEL users to transparently access a wide variety of features and functions that supplement their teaching and learning initiatives. The ANGEL–Turnitin partnership provides ANGEL users seamless access to Turnitin’s proprietary plagiarism prevention system that instantly identifies papers containing unoriginal material, acts as a powerful deterrent to stop student plagiarism before it starts, and ultimately helps develop quality writing and research skills.
