UFS Student Announcement: Turnitin

Dear student 

A decision was made not to upgrade our current Turnitin system at this stage given the implications on the UFS academic program. The technical upgrade will only take place after all assessments have been completed in July 2022. 

Please take note of the following interim arrangements:
1. Technical problems might be experienced by staff and students until the upgrade is completed.  These technical problems will be escalated from CTL to our Turnitin Support Engineers abroad, that will support and provide solutions were possible.  

Please note the following support for technical problems and issues:
Student issues: Should be reported to the student Blackboard helpdesk at or contact +27 51 401 9111 (option 5)

2. Turnitin can be used as normal for assessments. But given the current challenges and problems experience, lecturers might make use of alternative assessment submission methods.  Please ensure you stay up to date with the module communication on Blackboard and follow the directions provided by your lecturer.
We apologies for any inconvenience experienced and thank you for your patience and understanding.

Kind regards
The Academic Staff and Curriculum Development Team
Centre for Teaching and Learning
