How we are making a technological revolution: Stop handing in paper copies of essays!

This petition had 143 supporters


We are aiming to promote departmental adoption of a paperless assignment system across Lancaster University, whereby students would submit assignments and receive feedback and their grades online. Our primary aim is to encourage more departments across Lancaster University to embrace the technological changes that the University is committed to and has paid thousands of pounds into so that departments are using our money effectively! We are proposing that the burden to print a physical copy for each assignment should not rest on the shoulders of the students and instead, if academics do decide that they engage better with printed documents then they can print the essays at their own convenience

Once this local change has been achieved, we will seek to increase our influence.

In addition, in 2010, Lancaster University outlined the desire to reduce reliance on printing wherever feasible as part of its green initiatives to mitigate its contribution to atmospheric pollution. This idea offers a viable opportunity to meet this goal.
