Hi all,

For the marking bit, an option could be a program called Markin.
http://www.cict.co.uk/software/markin4/index.htm I haven't used it yet but
looked into it, it's free and it allows you to mark word documents and put
comments on it without printing them.

Anyone else that's used it may be able to offer more help.

>> Our Yr 8 Health Class uses a paper based book with worksheets they fill in

>> Teacher collects books, marks them and gives them back.
>> Admin have decided it would be great to have these online so students fill

>> Does anyone have a suggestion on how they would implement this proposal ?
>> Perhaps a number of Moodle Assignments ?
>> Or a number of PDF forms to be filled on line and submitted ?
>> Or a number of Web pages created with forms and submission into a back end
>> database /MySQL server ?
>> Just wondering what others think about this.
