Problem Description

When copying a Turnitin Assignment from the original content area to another content area by the instructor, the link for the assignment becomes broken. Turnitin does not support moving of assignments from one Blackboard content area to another.

You will see the error message "Content cannot be cast to" 


  1. The solution is for the instructor to delete the old content area and create a new Blackboard Content area 
  2. Create a new Turnitin assignment in that content area
  3. Ask Turnitin Support to transfer over any papers from the old assignment.

To avoid this issue in the future, please do not to move Turnitin assignments
