You can create your own QuickMark set (comment bank) that will be available to you in all courses that you teach (refer Create your own QuickMark Set guide).

The availability of QuickMark sets is based on who is logged on, not what Blackboard course the TurnItIn is accessed from. To pass a QuickMark set on to another staff member (i.e. tutor for your course), you need to download the QuickMark set and they will need to upload it into TurnItIn (when they are logged onto Blackboard).

Tip: Combine the QuickMark sets of all your teaching staff.

  • Have all your teaching staff download their QuickMark sets.
  • Have one staff member upload them all into a course.
  • Combine the comments into the one QuickMark set (refer Combine QuickMark Sets guide).
  • Download the combined QuickMark set to share with other staff.
