Submitting written work

Keep in mind that:

  • For all assignments, you must have a front page with the following information:
    • Course titel / Project titel
    • Course code or STADS code (projects). You can find the course code in the relevant course page in LearnIT and the STADS code in the project base 
    • The names of all students submitting the assignment
    • ITU-email for all students submitting the assignment (e.g. 
  • If you are writing a project (that has a project agreement in the project base), the title on your assignment must be the same as in your project agreement.
  • You submit under the relevant project or course.
  • Exam assignments for courses can be submitted two weeks before the submission deadline.
  • Projects can be submitted when the project agreement has been approved.
  • For the thesis and other projects you have to upload the assignment and the appendix separately.

Upon submitting your written work in learnIT, you will receive an auto-generated confirmation receipt by email.

Video upload

Video files are often quite large and can take a long time uploading to learnIT or even exceed the maximum file size permitted. Therefore we advice you to compress the file before submitting. 

There are various tools available to reduce video size. We recommend the free and open source tool, Handbrake which works on windows, linux and macOS.
To get started, please take a look at the quick start guide for Handbrake.


No, the system will close for download after the deadline. You can apply for an exemption to hand in after the deadline, but in needs to be on the basis of special circumstances.

If you want to apply, you should send the application as soon as possible and attach the assignment to the email. Remember to argue why you should be exempted.

If you do not submit within the deadline or if your application for exemption is rejected, a "not attended" (udeblevet) will be registered for the exam.

When you submit an assignment as a group, you should upload the project just once. Any member of the group can upload the project, and he or she must add the other group members in the submission window in LearnIT.

First, check the IT operating status. If the problem is not described here, or if it seems to be local (i.e. related to your computer), you can contact the IT Department ( for help.

No, you shouldn't submit anything. You will get a "u" for "udeblevet" (absent). It can mistakenly be registered as a submission for the exam, if you submit a blank sheet.

When you submit in LearnIT, you can choose to make the submission "confidential" and only the examiners will be able to see it.

You can ask if the oral examination can be held behind closed doors, but kindly note that it’s up to the examiners if they accommodate your requests.  

Please use the possibility of confidentiality with care, as important knowledge sharing will be lost if it is used too often. 

It is up to the Course manager to decide if students are allowed to upload 1 or 5 files, in LearnIT when submitting a course assignment.

All students need to check the exam activity on LearnIT for information about this.

The standard is that students can upload up until 5GB and all file types are allowed.

If there are any restrictions it will say so on the course description in LearnIT.

Also, to make sure your files do not exceed the maximum permitted, you can compress them in a .zip file. Here is a walk-through how to do that.

For a project the standard file size has a maximum of 100MB.

The different types of files can be: .odt,.pdf,.rtf,.docx,.doc,.pptx,.ppt,.html,.htm,.sxw,.txt

Besides the one file that is the project you are able to upload 5 appendices, with a maximum size of 2GB for each. Always check the exam activity in LearnIT, when in doubt.

Also, to make sure your files do not exceed the maximum permitted, you can compress them in a .zip file. Here is a walk-through how to do that.

At first, you will upload a draft. You can edit the draft or submit it. Once you have submitted, you cannot edit your submission.

You can apply for an exemption from the rule, but this will often have to be on the basis of special circumstances

After the project agreement has been approved, you can only change the project title. You can change the title until you have submitted the project.

You are however not assessed on the problem statement as described in the project agreement, so it is fine to put a revised problem statement in the finished project.

If you have substantial changes to the problem formulation, method or the like, you may want to describe them in an appendix or a summary about the project process in the finished project.
