Turnitin to end support for Internet Explorer 8

Starting July 1, 2014, Turnitin will no longer support Internet Explorer (IE8) browsers and we will no longer test or fix features and bugs found in Internet Explorer 8. This does not mean that Turnitin will immediately stop working in IE8, however we will be employing more modern browser capabilities such as HTML 5 that do not work with IE8.

We recommend that Internet Explorer 8 users upgrade or move to a current version of one of these free, supported industry standard browsers:

– Chrome: http://www.google.com/chrome

– Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

– Safari: http://www.apple.com/safari/

– Internet Explorer 9: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/internet-explorer-9-details.aspx

This was originally announced in December 2013 and notifications for users accessing Turnitin in IE8 have been notified upon logging in.

At Turnitin, we are continually improving the experience of providing rich feedback on student work. With this change Turnitin will be able to move forward towards full compatibility with the touchscreen capabilities of browsers for document interaction (leaving marks and comments).
