Instructors can set
due dates and/or availability dates on a Submission folder. Due dates show up in the Course Calendar, but they do not affect the accessibility or availability of the folder. To restrict student access to folders using dates, use availability dates.
There are three options for setting
availability date restrictions on a submission folder:
Access to Submission folders can also be managed and assigned individually (e.g. if a student requires additional time or early access). To manage access individually, see
Special Access to Submission Folders.
Due dates display in the Course Calendar, but they do not affect the accessibility or availability of the folder. Students can submit work to a submission folder after a due date, up until an End availability date, if one is set.
Special access allows instructors to set different availability dates and times for specific users.
Submissions can be checked against a database of internet sources, academic journals and publications, and student papers through Turnitin by enabling Originality Checking on Submission folders. See
Using Originality Checking for more information.
