In May 2016, we implemented TurnItIn's LTI-based Canvas integration that requires users to create TurnItIn assignments using the "External Tool" submission type. This integration replaced the older "check box" based method of creating TurnItIn assignments. As many of you are aware, TurnItIn's LTI-based integration proved to be less reliable than the previously used approach, resulting in many submissions not being correctly pushed back to Canvas's SpeedGrader.
