Turnitin is an online plagiarism prevention service which is very popular among students and teachers in many universities and high schools because it allows them to submit essays at their website in order to find out if their work is original. The Founders started this venture by “building a prototype of Turnitin that detects unoriginal content in student written work”, and since then it has been a huge success.[1]
