First Session (11:15 – 12:15) 
Inox Conference Suite 2

What is this about?
With a view to streamlining our existing processes of assessment submission and giving feedback we reviewed the options now available for e-submission, e-marking & e-feedback. We used the new MOLE assignment tool comparing this with our existing processes where we currently use email submission and return for formative & substantive assessments. Our main aim was to make the submission process and allocation of work to tutors less prone to error. Under our existing processes the return of the assessment with feedback to students was cumbersome and also prone to error. The electronic options now available are the MOLE assignment tool and Grademark (Turnitin). Due to time limitations as a result of submission dates we chose to work in the MOLE assignment tool. We also compared the facilities afforded by Grademark. You may draw your own conclusions!

How will colleagues benefit?
Those interested in making the most of the opportunities available for e-submisson, e-marking & e-feedback will be able to reflect on our experiences. We hope that some of our groundwork will be of benefit to others, both staff and students.
