Turnitin and Desire2Learn have announced significant usability and functionality enhancements to the integration of Grademark with Desire2Learn Learning Suite 10. This enhanced integration of Turnitin's online grading tool provides Desire2Learn users with richer grade collection capabilities in Grademark and the ability to transfer grades to Desire2Learn Learning Environment.
Instructors employing the new integration with Turnitin can now save up to 50 percent of their grading time when evaluating student writing by using the GradeMark drag-and-drop QuickMark comments, grading rubrics, and voice comments. U.S. customers will also have access to ETS e-rater grammar checking technology and writing handbooks that are integrated with Turnitin. All customers will experience additional flexibility and an easier interface with the Desire2Learn Learning Suite 10 integration.
