Turnitin, the leading provider of feedback, grading, and academic integrity solutions, today announced its partnership with EdTech agency and consultancy RepresentEdTech, appointing the firm as a value-added reseller (VAR) of Turnitin solutions in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.
Turnitin has been at the forefront of integrity solutions for over 20 years, supporting over 15,000 academic institutions, scholarly publishers, corporations, and government bodies in creating cultures of academic integrity, improving writing, and mitigating the reputational risks that unoriginal content can pose.
RepresentEdTech brings 25 years of EdTech experience to the region as part of this partnership. The team comprises former Urkund Creative Director and co-founder, Jonas Lundqvist, and former Urkund EMEA Sales Director, James Bennett, both of whom are passionate about Turnitin’s vision of supporting educators in their quest for academic excellence.
“We are thrilled to welcome RepresentEdTech as our value-added reseller for Scandinavia. We believe that the vast experience that James and Jonas bring will add great value to our customers in Scandinavia,” says Cees Poortman, Turnitin Regional VP for EMEA. “Being representatives of Turnitin in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, RepresentEdTech will be instrumental in our mission to support institutional efficiency and create a culture of academic integrity in all parts of the world.”
Based in Stockholm, RepresentEdTech will represent Turnitin locally and intend to transform the teaching and learning experience within this key region. “It is really exciting to represent the clear market leader in academic services,” says James Bennett, RepresentEdTech CEO. “Turnitin is so much more than just plagiarism prevention. We are especially keen to offer its suite of pedagogical tools so that educators in schools and universities in Scandinavia can experience quality that has hitherto not been readily available.”
“It is encouraging to be working with a company which has the competence and technological ability to rise to the current and future challenges facing academic integrity in Scandinavia,” adds Jonas Lundqvist, CTO of RepresentEdTech.
