Quick Tip: Submitting Multiple Files to an Assignment

Do you have an assignment that requires students to submit multiple files? This is not an issue if the assignment doesn’t have Turnitin enabled. By default, Turnitin doesn’t accept multiple file. When Turnitin is enabled, only one file is able to be submitted to an assignment by a student. We don’t want to discourage you from using Turnitin for assignments, so we’re providing you with a couple recommendations when your assignment requires the submission of multiple files.

  • Create an assignment with Turnitin enabled for each file the student needs to submit.
  • Ask students to combine their files into one file to submit.

Please contact LDT with questions about Turnitin and/or Canvas.
