How to Turn it In again.

With students across the University making submissions this time of year, you will find they have a variety of questions about their assignments.

The following student resources can be a useful way of answering some of these common queries:

Resubmissions, Resits and Mitigating Circumstances.

As assessment deadlines approach, further preparations should be made for any of your students who need to submit assessments outside of the normal timeframe, due to resubmissions, resits or mitigating circumstances.

For these types of resubmissions, Blackboard or Turnitin Assignments must have a new separate submission point created, so that students have the opportunity to resubmit after a deadline has passed. The new submission points need to be clearly marked, to clarify the meaning of each submission point.

The following instruction pages can be found in our TEL support resources:



PebblePad assessments can be configured in a number of ways, to permit resubmissions. Therefore, you may prefer to contact us, to seek direct support from a TEL Learning Technologist: If you are confident with altering PebblePad assessment settings, please ensure that you communicate any changes with your students, so that they are fully aware of how they can resubmit their assessment at a later date.

You CAN take it with you when you go

It will soon be time to say goodbye to your students, but this does not mean that they need to leave all of their university life behind. Students are entitled to a free Pebble+ Alumni Account, enabling them to take their portfolios and assets with them.

Information on how to do this can be found here but should not be followed until the course is completely finished – once the institution account is converted to an alumni account, it cannot be reversed.
