There are two suggested ways of getting started with electronic assignment submission and feedback. Both are managed through our VLE, Moodle

Option 1. Using the 'Advanced upload of assignments' activity in Moodle

  • you want to download and mark assignments offline (e.g at home or on your laptop computer)
  • you want to return annotated assignments for students to view
  • you want to provide your feedback in an alternative way, such as using an audio or video recording
