Adding Assignments:

A student submits an Assignment directly in Blackboard, either as an attached document or as typed text. The process is paperless. When you create the assignment, it is automatically added to the Grade Center.

Using SafeAssign:

SafeAssign is a tool that helps both students and instructors. After students submit their papers, the tool compares them to a database of academic work [note: not all professional journals are included] and internet sources. Each student receives a report on the submitted paper; the instructors can view the report and provide helpful feedback so the student correctly quotes, paraphrases, and cites sources. Instructors can also directly submit papers.
