The Turnitin Direct tools allow the Blackboard administrator to look at Blackboard Direct communication logs and view contents of the embedded database for a course.
The Turnitin Direct Tools link is located under the Tools and Utilities section of the System Admin page.
Clicking on the Turnitin Direct Tools link opens up the Turnitin Direct Tools page that displays links for the two tools: Blackboard Direct Communications Logs and the Database Viewer.
Blackboard Direct Communications Logs - can help administrators troubleshoot issues with the Buidling Block.
Database Viewer - this tool can be used to view the data of a particular course in addition to the logs as a means of debugging should an error be encountered.
