Smarthinking and Turnitin

Before you hand in a paper or other document in a course, submit it to the Smarthinking tutoring service for review. 

  • Tutors are available 24/7 to help with writing (and other subjects, too).
  • Plan ahead and submit your paper to Smarthinking early, you’ll have time for them to give you feedback before you need to submit your final draft.
There is a link to Smarthinking ("Tutoring") at the top of your D2L home page. 

NOTE: If you are in D2L, you do not have to "log in" to Smarthinking. If you are prompted to log into Smarthinking, close the Smarthinking page. Click again on the Smarthinking link at the top of your D2L homepage. On the System Check page, click on "Click here to continue."

Once you are at the Smarthinking dashboard:

  • Click on "Writing Help"
  • Then "Essay Center," (or choose another Subject).
  • Fill in the form
  • Choose the file from your device
  • Submit your paper.
