  5. 5.  eSubmission is being implemented in universities within the UK Not a new initiative but has developed on an ad hoc, experimental basis within individual institutions across the sector On the verge of a step-change from experimental to mainstream adoption of eSubmission Driven largely by expectations of efficiency gains and an improved student experience
  6. 6.  A network of senior staff in institutions engaged in promoting, supporting and developing technology enhanced learning Over 125 nominated Heads from UK Higher Education institutions A regular programme of well attended events Represents the interests of its members to various national bodies and agencies including the Higher Education Academy and JISC www.helf.ac.uk
  7. 7.  The survey took about 10 minutes to complete Participants were assured that all data collected in the survey would be held anonymously and securely No personal data was asked for or retained unless the participant indicated a willingness to participate in the follow-up activity The questions were a mixture of closed multiple- choice and multiple selection as well as open response type The survey was available for a month in 2011 and the results were analyzed using quantitative and qualitative methods.

  17. 17.  eSubmission is an important development in UK HE Changing roles of academics and administrative staff Increasing the work of learning technologists Technical infrastructure is in place There could be greater integration between VLEs, plagiarism detection software and student record systems Plagiarism policies tend to advocate use of plagiarism detection software for student development but it is often used for detection Positive support for a new role for HeLF to share policies, guidelines and case studies
