Siebel Scholar Elijah Mayfield (Carnegie Mellon CS ’11) is the VP of New Technologies at Turnitin,  a web-based writing tool that gives students instant feedback as they write. The Turnitin Revision Assistant was selected as one of the best education technology products of 2016 by the SIIA CODiE Awards.

The product was picked as a finalist in two categories of the 2016 SIIA CODiE Awards: Best Learning Capacity-Building Solution and Best Cross-Curricular Solution. The CODiE awards are considered the premier awards program for the software and information industries.

“It’s great that Turnitin Revision Assistant was selected as one of the best education technology products of 2016 by the SIIA CODiE Awards,” said Elijah Mayfield, vice president of new technologies at Turnitin. “Revision Assistant helps students practice and improve their writing, and we were very pleased to see the CODiE judges ‘got it,’ and that they were excited about supporting teachers in their writing instruction," said Mayfield.
