Do you know how to eSubmit your work?

Amy points out handy resources to help you with e-Submission

Turnitin is used for the e-submission of your assignments. It is an online tool that you use to upload your work so that it can be marked by your tutor. You access Turnitin from Blackboard.

Important things you need to know about submitting your work for marking

  • Use the correct naming convention for your files – your school may specify a particular format.
  • Submit your completed assignment to the correct, FINAL submissions folder when it is ready for marking. Work submitted mistakenly to the DRAFT folder at this stage will not be marked.
  • When you submit work for marking, you are accepting the submission declaration.
  • Check the file size. Files must be less than 40Mb. Contact your lecturer if your file is greater than 40Mb.
  • Use an accepted file type. File types accepted are: MS Word, WordPerfect, PostScript, PDF, HTML, RTF or plain text. You can ask at The Library for help if you are not sure about a file type. For non text-based assessments (e.g. audio/video, etc.) your tutor may use the Blackboard Assignment Tool.

    Dear Anne, you are not alone. I, and many others, also learnt the art of referencing the hard way!

    In reply to your post ‘Referencing Lessons #studentdiaries‘ and for anyone else working on assignments at the moment, here are some referencing tips from Skills for Learning:

    1. Make sure you know which referencing style you should be using.

    Styles mainly used at the University of Salford are APA 6th (Harvard Style) and Oscola (for Law subjects)

    2. As you read and make notes, write down your sources. read more
