MyBeckett is your portal to online learning, services, communications and resources at Leeds Beckett University.
Your course modules and timetable, learning resources and course announcements are available in MyBeckett. Your tutors may also post lecture notes, assessments, feedback and tools such as discussion boards, wikis and self/peer assessments for you.
See our Assignment Survival Guide for information about Blackboard and Turnitin assignments. You can also search our MyBeckett FAQs below.
There are two main types of online submission (Blackboard and Turnitin assignments). Your tutors will usually ask you to submit text-based assignments (such as essays) using Turnitin, and large files (such as videos) using Blackboard assignments.
The two types of submission dropbox have different technical requirements in terms of file type / size / submission process etc. This is what they look like in MyBeckett:
We recommend you use Google Chrome as your primary web browser. Chrome is a fast browser and is kept up to date by Google, reducing the number and effect of compatibility issues. We always recommend that you use a wired connection when submitting work.
Leave yourself plenty of time to submit your assignments and potentially to contact help or support staff if something goes wrong. The Skills for Learning assignment calculator may help you to work out how long it's going to take you to complete an assignment.
When you submit a Blackboard or Turnitin assignment, you can see proof that you've submitted.
If your tutor is marking / providing feedback online, you can view this once they have released it to you.
If you experience any problems submitting your assignments, see our Blackboard and Turnitin guides for more information.
