What are the differences between Blackboard Basic and Blackboard Direct?

Blackboard Basic


The Blackboard Basic plugin supports the full Turnitin Suite: Originality Checking, GradeMark, and PeerMark. When this plugin has been installed users can access Turnitin from within Blackboard. This means that all instances where Turnitin is used, the actual Turnitin screen appears within Blackboard. With this plugin, papers submitted to the Turnitin assignment are only stored in Turnitin.

The Blackboard Basic plugin is recommended for customers who would like to use the full Turnitin Suite.

 

Although the Blackboard Basic integration incorporates all of the Turnitin functionality, some users may prefer to only work from within the Blackboard interface. Customers with such a desire can use the Blackboard Direct integration.


Blackboard Direct

 

The Blackboard Direct plugin currently supports Turnitin OriginalityCheck and GradeMark. By using the Blackboard Direct plugin, all Turnitin actions have been incorporated seamlessly into the Blackboard workflow. This includes: Turnitin assignment creation, submitting papers to the assignment, and accessing Originality Reports and GradeMark. With this plugin, papers submitted to a Turnitin assignment are stored in both Blackboard and Turnitin. This plugin allows student users to access their submissions in Turnitin.

 

The Blackboard Direct plugin is recommended for customers who would like Turnitin to be incorporated seamlessly into the Blackboard workflow and only wish to use Turnitin OriginalityCheck and GradeMark. Although PeerMark is not currently available in the Blackboard Direct plugin, there are plans to include PeerMark in the future.
