Electronic Submission of Coursework – Information for Students

You will be required to submit most of your coursework electronically. Course Handbooks will identify cut-off dates and times.

Work will be submitted electronically via your Moodle course. This is a straightforward procedure and clear instructions are provided in each Moodle course.

All work submitted electronically will be submitted automatically to ‘Turnitin’. ‘Turnitin’ is an online service that compares your work with a database of journal articles, books and websites and previously submitted work and will identify the similarities between the database and your work. ‘Turnitin’ is often referred to as a plagiarism detection service.

‘Turnitin’ produces an ‘Originality Report’, which is a summary of the match between your work and other work within the ‘Turnitin’ database. A high level of match within the ‘Originality Report’ is not necessarily an indication that your work has been plagiarised. This judgement will be made, following full scrutiny of your work. As part of your feedback on your coursework, you will be able to access a copy of the ‘Originality Report’ for your work.

You will also have the opportunity to submit a draft copy of your work through ‘Turnitin’ which will provide you with feedback from the ‘Originality Report’.

It is important that you avoid plagiarism in the first instance and you may find it helpful to refer to the ‘Academic Conduct’ Channel, which can be accessed via the Student Portal.
