Turnitin is now available within Blackboard

At the end of the Fall semester, SafeAssign had some technical issues that caused long delays in generating originality reports on student work. In order to enable faculty members to respond to student work in a timely manner, TurnItIn has also been integrated into Blackboard and assignments can be created and managed from within each course's Blackboard shell. 
 
In order to use either tool—Turnitin or SafeAssign—faculty must first turn on that tool within the course's Blackboard shell. For a demonstration of how to do this, please see the short video at http://goo.gl/zcFgl   

To replace an existing Assignment or SafeAssignment with a Turnitin assignment: http://goo.gl/HRzO1 

  1. Create a Turnitin assignment. http://goo.gl/Sy8sE
  2. Find the original assignment/SafeAssignment that you want to replace, and copy the instructions to the clipboard.
  3. Go to the Turnitin assignment and select 'edit,' scroll to 'optional settings,' and paste the instructions into the appropriate space (you will need to click the + sign for 'optional settings' in order to do this).
  4. Delete the original assignment (you must do this immediately before deleting the column in the Grade Center)
  5. Go into the Grade Center and delete that assignment column. (Note: you must delete the Grade Center column immediately after deleting the assignment from the content area.)
  6. While in the Grade Center, click the Manage button and select manage columns. Move the new Turnitin assignment column to where you want it.
