The University has two systems that can be used to collect coursework from students online, mark the work online, and provide feedback and provisional marks online. One system is called Turnitin and the other is called Blackboard Assignment. Both of them have the following similarities;
They have a “Built-in ” originality checking (possible plagiarism) function.
University policy has now changed and requires that this option to allow students to view their originality score and matches is selected for all assignments on all modules, whether it is Blackboard Safeassign or Turnitin.
They are integrated with the Blackboard Grade Centre which means that any feedback and marks entered whilst marking coursework online will be accessible via the Blackboard Grade Centre.
The University has two systems because each offers some advantages over the other in certain circumstances.
