Abstract

This paper offers an appraisal of commonly available electronic submission methods and acknowledges the need to accommodate local factors in the process of identifying a suitable method. We offer a selection procedure that enables each educator to evaluate alternatives, in a manner that accommodates individual circumstances and subjective weighting of key factors, in order to arrive at a 'best fit' of submission method to localcontext. This employs a general decision procedure, similar in approach to conjoint analysis, applicable to any context in which an individual wishes to choose between a set of alternative items by subjectively rating their desirability across any set of criteria. The procedure assists by easing the task of identifying the preferred option. We illustrate the use of this selection procedure for electronic coursework submission methods and present a simple software tool that assists in this process.
