File upload submission

The file upload submission type allows you to submit to an assignment through directly loading the file from your computer.

Make sure that the file type you are submitting can be accepted by Turnitin.

Users whose files are saved in a file type that is not accepted by Turnitin will need to use a word processing program to save the file as one of the accepted types. Rich Text Format and Plain Text file types are nearly universally available in word processing software. Neither file type will support images or non-text data within the file. Plain text format does not support any formatting, and rich text format supports only limited formatting options.
