Submit a Blackboard assignment

What is it?

Most non-text-based work will need to be uploaded to your module in a Blackboard assignment rather than through a tool like Turnitin. Blackboard accepts nearly all file types, which makes this the ideal submission point for images, .zip files, or any other non-text-based file format. 

What does it do?

Although Turnitin is recommended for your typical essay submission, if you are required to submit any other type of work, you might be asked to submit through Blackboard Assignments.

What should I know?

Step 1: Navigate to the Assessment Area in the Course Content section of your module

Step 3: A side panel will appear where you can see the due date and the number of attempts you have, to submit your assignment. Select View assessment

Step 4: Select Add Content to locate your file.

Note: Make sure you name your file clearly to ensure you upload the correct document. This is particularly important if your test or assignment includes only one attempt

Step 5: When you are ready to submit your assignment, click submit.

NOTE: The button for ‘Save and Close’ DOES NOT submit your work. Neither your instructor nor IT will be able to access anything that is saved rather than submitted. Once you are ready for your work to be turned in officially, you MUST click the button for ‘Submit’.
