  10. 10. Did students like it? •Email • Blog • Spot surveys • Focus groups I also feel that lecturers returned grades to students much more promptly when they were on paper I do think that electronic feedback is good because it is easy and quick. It was beneficial as it is easier to hand in assignments instead of having to travel into the university however feel there is less feedback given It would be better if it was more uniform.I think its brilliant and it saves time and money on travelling.”
