Are there file size limits?

eAssignment files size limits

If your assignment is set up to be used with Turnitin plagiarism checking, the maximum allowed file size is 100mb.

When using eAssignments without Turnitin checking, then we recommend that files are no larger than 250mb. This is because it can be difficult for some internet connections to upload a file, despite the internet connection showing a good download speed.

Compressing files

If a document is over the file size limit, then it might be possible to make the document smaller by compressing the images.  Microsoft has a guide on how to do this found here: Reduce image file sizes.

If you are submitting a PowerPoint presentation containing media content (audio and video), you can compress this by following these instructions: Compress your media files.

(If you are working on a Mac, you will not have this option but you can save your presentation to your OneDrive and log into the Southampton Virtual Environment; from here you will have the option to compress media files when you open your file in PowerPoint)

Audio and video submission

If you want to use eAssignments for video submission, we generally recommend using Panopto instead: https://elearn.southampton.ac.uk/panopto/students/
