What Is Markin For?

Teachers working in modern, on-line learning environments need computer-based tools for marking their students' work, and Markin is the ideal solution for most electronic marking applications. If your students submit their work electronically, as documents and/or via email, you need to be able to mark and return these documents just as quickly and easily as you can mark work submitted on paper - and in some cases more quickly. This is what Markin is designed to do.

How Does Markin Work?

Markin is a Windows program which runs on the teacher's computer. It can import a student's text for marking by pasting from the clipboard, or directly from a document file. Once the text has been imported, Markin provides all the tools a teacher needs to mark and annotate the text.

When marking is complete, Markin saves it as an XHTML document, in which the teachers marks and annotations appear as coloured text. When the student opens this document in a web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), they can click on the marks to reveal more detail about the nature of the teacher's annotation or comment.

Markin can also export the marked work as a RTF file, which is more suitable for students who want to view it as a printout.

To find out more, see the Features page, or have a look at the Tutorial Videos online tutorial. You can also download and install the program free of charge, from the download page.
