Option to set up Turnitin as the default assignment type for course

Option to set up Turnitin as the default assignment type for course

Greetings!

For those still using the Turnitin API, and enabling a checkbox in the assignment settings, it would be great to have an option to set up Turnitin as the default assignment type for a course in the course Settings.

What do you think about this?

 @a_kazak , are you referring to a course-wide default of having the Turnitin API (checkbox) enabled for all assignments, or are you referring to a course-wide default to the External Tool type for assignments utilizing the Turnitin LTI?

I am referring to a course-wide default of having the Turnitin API (checkbox) enabled for all assignments.

 @a_kazak ‌, thanks for that clarification. At one point Turnitin had announced their plans to deprecate the API, and at this juncture it's not clear how much longer Turnitin will continue its support for the API (you'll need to get guidance on that from them), but I've edited your description to clarify that your request is specific to the Turnitin checkbox being enabled in a course by default for all assignments (API)—and the idea is open for voting.

And on the subject of Turnitin, this is an opportune time to mention the upcoming CanvasLIVE‌ event, https://community.canvaslms.com/events/2277-partner-webinar-turnitin-and-canvas-in-the-flow  (Tuesday, October 17, 2017; check the event for local times).
