    They complain their dog chewed through the Internet cable

    On a more serious note, VLE usually.

    About four of the ways mentioned in the poll - depends on the teacher

    Printed out, teacher comments on it, pupil corrects it and reprints, teacher marks it... and repeat

    Think they check the work on screen with the student. Student either emails it to school or uses VLE or memory sticks it to school in the first place.

    We would normally say VLE, unfortunately Studywiz support is about as good as the product they sell and currently kids are having to bring in Autorun infected USB drives and drop it on to the network folders made by staff ... well, they do this anyway with the VLE working too :P

    Depends on the faculty, usually VLE, where user knowledge is available.
    Otherwise i would have thought USB/Printed.
    Really does depend on the department and whether they know what is available to them (working on it!)

    All of the above, depending on the kid, teacher or type of work.

    Should have been a multiple option poll.

    Most of the colleges I deal with, it would be via the VLE

    We have a custom coded upload system that allows students to 'send' a piece of work to a member of staff. The teacher gets an email with a link direct to the work which they can then do what they like to & then hand it back to the student. It is a bit clunky but it works (mostly). Hoping to migrate to using the VLE once uptake is high enough.

    E-Mail mainly at the moment, but we've just started using the VLE in school, so I'm hoping to try and steer people to using this in the future.

    Some subjects it is via the VLE, some subjects it is done the old fashioned way. Really depends on how technologically able each department is.

    Not going to be relevant to many people, but one of the things which is used here (at least as a trial) is upload to a subversion server. At deadline point, the tutor can lock the submitted code and check it out for marking. This is all program code so it should be possible to mark it automatically - ie you build it and run it and check to make sure it produces the expected output.

    Probably won't work for English essays or geography coursework but a nice idea for programming (even if that's hardly taught!)

    Generally via the VLE in most subjects.
