Instructional Technology is the theory and practice of using technology for education. There are several benefits available to today’s digital learner, including access to information, opportunities for collaboration, and improved capabilities for meeting diverse learning styles. The Instructional Technology Department provides training and resources for instructional technologies that enable engaging and effective learning experiences for faculty, students and staff. Learners also have flexible meeting options, such as a virtual session, group webinar or private consultation. We enjoy meeting the instructional needs of Morton College faculty, staff and students.

TurnitinThe Morton College Library offers an online plagiarism prevention service for the Morton College Community called TurnItIn. This database is a proprietary system that instantly identifies papers containing unoriginal material and acts as a powerful deterrent to stop student plagiarism before it starts. TurnItIn can be used in conjunction with Blackboard and is found under Course Content > Assessments of your Blackboard Course Site. Please note, if you wish to use TurnItIn as a stand-alone plagiarism prevention service you will need to create an account. Please contact the Instructional Technologist for more information on accessing this resource.
