Some assignments require students to submit a recording of a presentation, either as a video file or a PowerPoint file that contains audio.

The 100MB file size limit in Turnitin occasionally causes problems for students during submission of this type of assignment. Therefore we have documented a process that uses Blackboard’s Assignment tool for submission.

The guides take staff through the process of setting up the assignment dropbox, and adding marks and feedback after submission. Staff can provide students with the student guides which cover making a recording and exporting it, submitting their video file (with an optional section that staff can share for submitting a PowerPoint .pptx file instead), and viewing their grades and feedback.

The links to the guides are below.

As always, any feedback is appreciated.
