WebHW is a web based homework submission and return tool. It was originally developed to support the Freshman Engineering program.
WebHW provides instructors with a simple way to set up online submission, grading, and return of electronic homework materials. The students’ submissions are organized by both section number and assignment. The instructor sets dates for each assignment that specify when students may submit homework, whether or not late assignments are accepted, and when the homework will be available for review. Instructors are granted permissions to the homework storage area for each of their classes so that they may grade the assignments. If appropriate, instructor comments can be added as annotations in the submitted file; if not, a separate file of comments may be created for the student. Instructors may also add Teaching Assistants for each section. They will be granted access to the submitted assignments to assist with grading. The student interface is also entirely web based for both submission and return.
