Turnitin filesize limit increased

turnitin logoThe maximum size of files being submitted to Turnitin has been increased. Previously, you could not submit a file larger than 20Mb, but this limit has now been doubled to 40Mb.

Ironically, this change coincided almost exactly with the publication of a new user guide: A student’s guide to reducing file size for online submission

It is unlikely that many students will produce documents in excess of 40Mb. However the advice in the guide is still relevant – knowing how to compress images in order to reduce overall filesize is a useful skill for any IT user. And besides, submitting a 40Mb file could take a long time, especially off-campus, so it still makes sense to reduce the size of unnecessarily large files.
