Browser Guidance for Staff Marking Using Blackboard and Turnitin

We recommend using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers to access Blackboard and especially when marking assignments.

Clear your browser cache before marking. Instructions for doing so can be found here.

Minimise the number of browser windows and tabs you have open.

Turnitin uses a pop up window. Pop-ups need to be enabled.

Avoid using the previous and next paper arrows for moving between papers. Close the window and open the next paper from the Assignment Inbox page.

Use a stable and secure internet connection.

Browsers can time out after a period of inactivity. It is better to log out for a time and log back in later.
