Preparing for Online Submission: Checklist
You may be required to upload essays and other work for assessment through Blackboard. This may be to a Blackboard Assignment or to a Turnitin Assignment, created for you by your lecturer.
Whichever tool is being used, please:
- Make sure you have read carefully any instructions provided by your lecturer on what you need to do to complete the assignment and how and when to submit your work.
- Make sure you know whether the submission point allows you to submit more than once, or if your first submission is final.
- Don’t wait until the last minute to submit your work! Leave plenty of time to submit your work online (at least 24 hours) before the assignment deadline and allow time for unexpected technical issues.
- Make sure you have access to a computer with a reliable internet connection, and access to Blackboard, at the time you want to submit your work.
