Aberystwyth University uses Turnitin and Blackboard Assignment for Electronic Submission. In line with the University's E-submission policy, all students must submit all text-based and word-processed work electronically.
From September 2020, Turnitin submission points should be set up to allow students multiple submissions before the deadline and to view their Turnitin Similarity Score (as agreed by Academic Board). See our blogpost for further information.
We support online examinations using Blackboard Tests. If you want to discuss this further, email email@example.com and consult our Blackboard Tests for Remote Exams Guide.
