Abstract Coursework is a necessary part of most subjects in most disciplines. Some subjects require a series of continuous assessments to be taken during the course of the semester, resulting in a large amount of paperwork and administrative overhead. In this paper we describe a mechanism for collecting coursework, providing a means of verifying receipt of coursework, and publishing the results automatically. The aim of the work is to provide a user-friendly interface for students to submit all forms of electronic coursework (textual and binary), and an equally user-friendly interface for tutors to download coursework, and subsequently publish the coursework grade. In this way, neither the student nor the tutor need be expert in computing, and the overhead of processing coursework is greatly diminished.
