Blackboard Assignments

Blackboard’s own Assignments tool. If you are collecting posters or videos from your students, this may be a preferred choice over Turnitin.


Particularly useful for instructors working with handwritten, paper-based assessments, code projects, etc. The tool also allows for efficient scanning of paper-based assignments and offers handwritten text recognition and automated AI-assisted marking.


Turnitin (TII) combines assignment submission, plagiarism detection and online marking. It is accessed via Blackboard, allowing instructors to set up submission areas in their course units.
