Adding Students to Turnitin

To add your students to Turnitin so they can submit their assignments to be checked you will need to create a class and add the students. For instructions on creating a class see here. To add the students you can either have the students enroll themselves or export a list of students from Blackboard to manually add them into Turnitin. To add them using the second method, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to the course in Blackboard that you wish to add students from.
  2. Make sure that "Edit Mode" in the top right corner of the page is in the "On" position.
  3. In the control panel menu on the left-hand side of the page click on the two right-facing arrows next to the "Grade Center" link.
  4. On the Grade Center page, you should see a "Work Offline" button. Put your mouse over the button and then click on the "Download" link.
  5. To download just a list of users in your course, select the radio button that says "User information only". For Delimiter Type, select "Tab". Scroll to the bottom of the page and press "Submit".
  6. When prompted, click on the Download button and choose where to save the Excel file.
  7. Next, login to Turnitin and go to the Instructor-Administrator menu at the top.
  8. Click on the "All Classes" and then select the class you wish to add students to.
  9. Click on "Upload Student List".
  10. Click on "Browse" and find the Excel file you downloaded from Blackboard earlier. Click on "Upload List" to add the students to Turnitin. If they do not already have a Turnitin account, they will be emailed instructions to create one.
