Turnitin is a great tool to utilise when setting up an assignment in Blackboard. Using Turnitin can make it easier to collate a cohort’s assignments, as well as to view originality reports.

Turnitin works by comparing a student’s assignment with a range of other assignments online, as well as websites and other sources. Students can upload their assignments via Turnitin themselves, or you can upload them yourself.
