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 larger than 10 MB, you can still submit although SafeAssign will not be able to process the file and generate the similarity report)

In the first instance please check with your lecturer or module leader as they are managing the content within their modules.
If the problem persists and the content has been published on the Blackboard module but you still cannot access it, please contact us.
Blackboard will allow you to submit an assignment after the due date if your lecturer created a Blackboard Assignment,  and will notify your lecturer that it was a late submission. What this means in terms of your grade is governed by module policy. Turnitin might not allow you, depending on how the assignment was set up. Please contact your lecturer for more information.
There might be different reasons for this, depending on how your lecturer set up the assignment. Blackboard Assignment has a 100MB* file size upload limit. The assignment might also have been set up not to allow late submissions. Please contact your lecturer for clarification, or contact us.

Whenever you submit an assignment, please make sure you check your email for a confirmation receipt. If you didn’t receive it, contact us.
Please contact your module leader to inform them you made a wrong submission. Then, contact us. Your module leader will be contacted and they will decide how to proceed. Please keep in mind that this process might take some time and assignments have deadlines, so if you made a wrong submission, contact the Service Desk and your module leader as soon as possible.
Turnitin is an online software program which searches a database of journals, past student work and much of the Internet to find strings of text which match with a piece of a student’s work. When you submit a piece of work, an originality report is produced and your lecturer has access to it.
