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 Рknowing 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.
