    Greetings:

    Thank you for your time in reviewing this idea.

    It would be wonderful if Turnitin were enabled for Discussions posts and responses.

    This would prevent students from cobbling together information from online sources to write original discussion posts.  It would be optimal if the Turnitin feature worked like the one provided for assignment submissions, so that students and faculty can see the percentage of match, etc.  This would be another great tool for helping students understand the importance of originality and avoiding plagiarism.

    Thank you very much for your consideration.
