How do I submit to a Blackboard Assignment.

This article provides instructions on how to submit an assignment within Blackboard. 

Blackboard Assignments are different from Turnitin assignments.

If your submission does not look like this, you may have a Turnitin assignment.  Please refer to these instructions: How to submit a Turnitin assignment

Step 1: Log into your Blackboard account at and open your Learning Site

Step 2: From the left menu, click on Assignment Tasks and Submissions.

Sometimes, the assessment items are located in a different area within your learning site. You may need to check some of the other assignment information sections.

Step 3: Search for the specific assignment and click the bold heading to open the submission page.
