First off, log into Blackboard and select the course you would like to create the assignment in. Make sure when you get to that course that Edit Mode is on, or you will be unable to create an assignment. Next go to the left hand side of the screen and click on the “Content” portion of the tool bar. Get to the area where you would like to create the content, hover your mouse over “Assessments” and when a menu drops down click on Turnitin Direct Assignment.
You will then be prompted with several different options. Make sure to type the name and a description if you’d like. You can choose the upload type and how many submissions per student there can be. You also set the start date and the due dates too. It then gives you options to exclude material if you would like, as well as account options. You can also set up an option to reveal grades on a certain date. When you have all your options configured, click the “Create Assignment” button to create your assignment!
