Blackboard Assignment

A Blackboard Assignment is an online submission point for your assessment. You can grade student work (offline or online) and provide feedback in a variety of ways using inline comments, a designated feedback box, or by uploading files. 

Using a Blackboard Assignment gives you flexibility. It allows for students to submit multiple files at once, supports a wider variety of file types than Turnitin, and supports files larger than 100MB. However it does not provide the Turnitin originality report.


Blackboard produce a range of guides to help you set up, mark and provide feedback to your students using the Blackboard Assignment tool. 

You can find a full range of support information and advice on the use of Blackboard Assignment for students on the IT Services website.
