Study from home: Submitting Assignments
>> Return to the main Studying from home page
Most assignments, at the University of Cumbria, are submitted via Turnitin in Blackboard. Turnitin is a plagiarism detection and prevention database which will provide feedback to you on the similarity of your work compared with a worldwide collection of resources and previously submitted student work.
You also have access to a Turnitin Test Area (available via the Students tab in Blackboard), so that you can check your work before formally submitting it. This should help you to ensure that you correctly reference any sources that you have used in your work.
Other assignments, particularly in the Institute of the Arts, will have alternative submission requirements. Your tutors will provide full details of what is expected and how to submit assignments that are presented in alternative formats.
Narrated PowerPoints and other media files
There are some assignments that require you to create media files such as narrated PowerPoints, audio presentations or video presentations. These files are often too large to be submitted through Turnitin and may require you to submit the transcript, but then share the presentation with your tutors via your university OneDrive.
Please see Sharing Media Files for Assessment on the Sharing Files page for more information.
