Filenames should only include alphanumeric characters. Filenames with special characters
or punctuation (e.g. % | ! | $ | : | # ) will not upload. Rename your file on your
computer without special characters and reupload.
D2L places few restrictions on file types that can be uploaded to an Assignment.
However, if your instructor has enabled Turnitin on the Assignment, it may be restricted
to allow only the following file formats:
Microsoft Word® (.doc/.docx)
Hangul Word Processor file (.hwp)
OpenOffice Text (.odt)
Rich text format (.rtf)
Adobe Acrobat® (.pdf)
Plain text (.txt)
Microsoft PowerPoint® (.pptx, .ppt, .ppsx, and .pps)
It is possible to submit PowerPoint® files through Turnitin. Turnitin converts the
PowerPoint® slide deck into a static PDF, leaving all text and images in their original
format but leaving out features such as presenter notes, embedded video, and animations.
Text with visual effects is not supported, and it is recommended that any visual effects
such as shadows and 3D be removed prior to submitting to Turnitin.
Microsoft Excel® (.xls and .xlsx)
The version of the file that can be viewed in the Document Viewer will look the same
as it would if the Excel file had been saved as a PDF and submitted to Turnitin.
Users can adjust the way the file looks by editing the page setup and print area settings
for the file prior to saving it and submitting it.
