UQ Instructors Cut Paper by Marking Online
UQ staff are embracing online marking to save time, money, lots of paper and the environment!
This year over 50% of assignments were marked online avoiding the paper, ink and the printers required for 140,000 print copies. This has grown from 23% when electronic submission was first promoted in 2012. Electronic marking was available prior to 2012.
UQ's learning management system facilities enable more efficient and reliable assignment submission with assignments immediately available to instructors for marking and once marked are quickly available to students for reflection.
Discover insights into how the School of History, Philosophy, Religion and Classics implemented online marking this year from Associate Professor Martin Crotty, Head of School.
