Turnitin has provided Blackboard users with a module that allows Turnitin Assignments to be created without leaving the Learning Management System.
To create a Turnitin Assignment using our current version of Blackboard, make sure you have a builders role by choosing the build tab near the top left of the screen.
From the Course Tools menu on the left of the screen choose Course Content. The Turnitin Assignment is built in this window.
At the top of the page you will notice a button called Add Content Link. Click on this button to access the options.
From the options on this menu choose Turnitin Assignment. Upon choosing this option you will notice a button called Create Turnitin Assignment.
Choose this option and you will be prompted to title your assignment and then create it.
Upon the assignments creation you will be prompted to choose options for the assignment. Notice that at this stage the options reflect an actual interaction with turnitin.com. If you are familiar with Turnitin.com you should know how to proceed. If you are unfamiliar with setting up assignments on turnitin.com please see the tutorials regarding this program.
