Turnitin is completely integrated with D2L through Dropbox.
When the instructor sets up the assignment in Dropbox, they click a box under the Originality Check header; this automatically submits it to Turnitin.
In D2L's Dropbox, the folder properties window has an "originality check" option that an instructor can choose to submit assignments to Turnitin.
