At the University we use two different types of assignment tools. Within MyAberdeen, we can create Blackboard Assignments and use SafeAssign to check the originality of the students’ submissions.
TurnitinUK is a third-party tool that is integrated with MyAberdeen. It is an online service which compares student assignments with online sources including web pages, books, databases of reference material, and content previously submitted by other users across the globe.
Online self-help materials on Blackboard and Turnitin assignments, such as our eLearning Quick Guides, can be found in the Links below.
