This guide relates only to assignments created using the new Turnitin LTI assignment tool.
Why might I need to do this?
There may be times when you want to submit work to Turnitin on a student’s behalf – for instance, if the student has experienced technical difficulties, or if you are making ad hoc submissions on a course where Turnitin is not routinely used.
How to do it
Locate the Turnitin assignment in your Blackboard course and click on Assignment Title.
This will open the Assignment Inbox.
On the top menu in the Assignment inbox type the name of the student into the “Submit on behalf of student” search box.
Click on the name from the list and a pop-up window will appear to confirm your intention.
If there is already a submission for the selected student the pop-up message will appear explaining that to continue with overwrite the first submission.
When you press Continue a Submit File screen will now appear which allows your to upload a file from your local computer or cloud services.
- Upload a file from your locate computer
- Upload a file from Cloud Submission
There is also a Text Input option.
When uploading a file the Submission Title will auto-fill as the file name, but this can be changed if you need to give the submission a specific title.
Click Upload and Review.
The selected file will show in a preview window. Click Submit to Turnitin.
Once submitted you will be returned to the Assignment Inbox where a Success banner will appear at the top.
