How do I submit a Blackboard assignment?

Before you start - the recommended browser for using MyBeckett is Google Chrome.

We advise that you don't include any personal details within your submission, except for your student ID.

You can watch the video guide or follow the steps below on how to submit a Blackboard assignment.

To submit a Blackboard assignment:

  1. In your module, locate the Blackboard assignment your lecturer has set up. Your lecturer can tell you where this is.
  2. When you've found it, click the assignment name to access it.


  3. You'll see the Due Date, Maximum marks (Points Possible) you can achieve and any instructions your lecturer may have added on the next page.
  4. Choose the option to either (a) attach a file. Click Upload Files then Browse Local Files (for more detail please read from point 5) or Browse Cloud Service - choose 'OneDrive' to access your Student OneDrive account to upload your assignment. (b) Use the Create Submission section to submit text or links (for example to YouTube). Note: if you are submitting a video assignment, see our How do I submit a video for assessment? FAQ.
  5. Locate your assignment file on your PC/OneDrive and click Open/OK.
  6. Your assignment will appear in the Attached files list.
  7. You can also attach multiple files to a Blackboard assignment by clicking on browse again.
  8. Click Submit
  9. When your file(s) have finished submitting, a purple Success! message will appear at the top of the page. If this does not appear, and you see a blue pie chart icon, see our Why is my Blackboard assignment showing a blue pie chart icon? FAQ.
