Abstract: I used electronic assignment submission and marking for MATH1061 (Semester 1 2019) and MATH2302 (Semester 2 2019). Assignments can be submitted in Blackboard and marked directly in Blackboard but tutors generally find marking in Blackboard to be awkward and slow. I will demonstrate the system we used in 2019 which was to download the assignments from Blackboard, separate them into tutorial groups in a shared OneDrive folder, mark them using pdf annotation tools (several options will be demonstrated), and upload the annotated assignments to Blackboard using the assignment upload tool. This allows students to submit assignments while not on campus, receive feedback without having to collect a physical assignment, and it reduces the size of the assignment piles our tutors carry around. Due to ongoing travel restrictions, many of our students are not able to attend campus for the start of this semester, and this is one way to facilitate assignment submission for these students.

All welcome! Delicious treats will be provided.

About Teaching and learning seminars

Our teaching and learning seminars focus on innovations and projects that are underway in teaching mathematics, statistics and physics at UQ and other institutions.

We discuss the hot issues, and hear from people who are trying out new things.

Over the past 10 years many new ideas have been generated, collaborations made both within and across disciplines, and teaching grant proposals designed, submitted and received.

Students, staff and visitors to UQ are welcome to attend, and to suggest speakers and topics.
