Worcester Business School (WBS) is currently in the process of adopting on-line submission and assessment (marking) procedures. In order to evaluate this, a pilot project was undertaken to highlight the pros and cons to both staff and students. The report begins by outlining some of the current problems with the existing manual system and then proceeds to discuss the findings of the study through the resulting advantages and disadvantages of adopting on-line submission.

    4) External examiner moderation To continue using the on-line submission / marking as a truly paperless process, it was necessary to create a procedure to allow external examiners to moderate the assessment and associated paperwork. To facilitate this, the University created an additional login ID and password to allow the external examiners to access both pilot modules via the Blackboard VLE. Step-by-step directions were also created to direct the external examiners to the related folders and files.

    5) Initial set up There was some additional administrative work creating the assignment folder in Blackboard and understanding its functionality. After the first assignment was set up, it was relatively easy to duplicate the process for the other modules and assignments. However, it would be beneficial to initiate a training session for lecturers who are new to this Blackboard submission function.
