Guidance: What you should know?

The University has two systems because each offers some advantages over the other in certain circumstances. For a more detailed explanation, please see this pdf guide.

Both Turnitin and Blackboard assignments accept file sizes up to 100 MB and 800 pages, however, your files should not exceed the 100 MB limit. If the Blackboard assignment is using the SafeAssign option, then the file size must be less than 10 MB for the similarity report to be generated. (if the file is a larger than 10 MB, you can still submit although SafeAssign will not be able to process the file and generate the similarity report).

It is the process of transferring marks/grades from Blackboard to the student record system (SITS). For a more detailed explanation, please visit the What is Grade Journey page.
