Turnitin named 2024’s EdTech Breakthrough Awards “Overall Edtech Company of the Year”

EdTech company selected out of thousands as one of the best and brightest technology companies

OAKLAND, Calif. - June 11, 2024

Turnitin was named “Overall EdTech Company of the Year” by EdTech Breakthrough for its innovative commitment to academic integrity and improving learning outcomes. Out of thousands of award submissions for the sixth annual awards program, Turnitin was selected as one of the best and brightest educational technology companies across the world.

Each year, EdTech Breakthrough’s awards program evaluates the global edtech industry, recognizing and highlighting “breakthrough” edtech solutions and companies. Their mission is to honor excellence and recognize the creativity, hard work and success of companies, technologies and products in the field.

"This has been a transformative year for education and our customers. Turnitin has been focused on moving at the speed of AI," said Annie Chechitelli, chief product officer at Turnitin. "We are honored to receive this award because it recognizes our focus and commitment to our customers."

For Turnitin, 2023 brought about change to the educational landscape, as well as celebrations and milestones. After celebrating 25 years in global academic integrity, Turnitin continues to partner with educational institutions to promote honesty, consistency, and fairness across all subject areas and assessment types. The company is among the most widely used tools for verifying authenticity and original work across 17,000 institutions, 71 million students and 185 countries.

In April 2023, Turnitin launched its AI writing detection feature after the widespread adoption of AI writing left educators, administrators and institutions trying to keep up with its impact; from the need for new academic integrity policies to a demand for new assessment forms. In fact, in one year since its launch, over 200 million papers have been reviewed, indicating the continued use of AI in writing submissions.

Earlier this year, Turnitin also celebrated two other award wins from Tech & Learning Magazine’s Best of 2023 and GSV 150 for supporting educators, learning and academic integrity through innovative products.

Part of the international leading market intelligence organization Tech Breakthrough, EdTech Breakthrough analyzes and recognizes emerging technology products and services from industry leaders in today’s most competitive categories of technology.
