See our guide to system downtime for advice if your assignment deadline is affected.

Your submission

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. We advise that you don't include any personal details in your submission, except for your username.

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:

Which browser?

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.

Digital receipts

When you submit a Blackboard or Turnitin assignment, you can see proof that you've submitted.

Marks and feedback

If your tutor is marking / providing feedback online, you can view this once they have released it to you.

Worst case scenario…

If you experience any problems submitting your assignments, see our Blackboard and Turnitin guides for more information.
