Turnitin down for everyone? Is this some planned downtime I've missed?

Anyone else out there using peer review in turnitin? We are in our second year of running it and Id like to have a chin wag with anyone else doing same. Particularly interested in how we deal with students who wont review so we have ended up with at least 1  person who has done what's expected of them but not had their submission reviewed. Also the flexibility of the tool is bit pants...eg you cant extend the period over which the reviews can be completed for any late comers

that would be a no. We had 2 students who wanted to do it a day late but no way of accommodating them

Another top tip. Don't be tempted to go fetch your sandwich while you're editing a complicated turnitin rubric for when you return the turnitin frame in MOLE will have timed out and you new rubric and the last hours work will be lost. Seriously folks, what is the time-out on turnitin via MOLE?

Hi Ian, I can at least sympathise as this has indeed happened to me, minus the sandwich. The advice for this one is save as you go (there is a save button at the bottom right).. MOLE timeout is 30 minutes.. Turnitin itself can time out too, but this is  after one hour.

Ha! As if we had time (or enough feeling left in our fingertips due to the cold) to do that! Did you manage to get a play any other time?

Just shared this with our Director of L&T - think it has a lot of merit even outside of the world of EMA, really useful checklist.
