Web application that accepts uploaded assignment files from students and provides a receipt. Allows staff to set due dates, rules about what files are allowed or required, grant extensions and view and download submissions.
Created for The University of Auckland Computer Science Department in 2013
The Computer Science department at the University of Auckland had an existing web based system which allowed students to submit their assignments (primarily program source code) online. The system had cut-off dates for submissions and provided students with a receipt to confirm their submission. However the underlying technologies were being retired and the existing system couldn't be modified to accommodate, so they needed a replacement system.
The home page lists all active dropboxes for the students to submit to. For administrators, it also lists the dropboxes they can administer with a summary of submissions to them.
The submission page dynamically validates the file selected to ensure they meet the submission rules.
After a successful submission, the student is shown a receipt which clearly indicates whether the submission succeeded or failed. They also receive a copy via email.
For more information about the system features, you can read the Instructions for Staff document that I created to explain the system features to staff:
This system is currently in use by the Computer Science department at The University of Auckland. It has received over 12,000 submissions from students so far, and has drawn praise from both students and staff for the ease of use.
