You are encouraged to submit your completed labs and assignments to me in an environmentally friendly way, e.g. by email or on disk.
Printed copies of Labs and Papers will always be accepted without penalty.
If you are submitting a file, please label your file with your name.
If you are sending an e-mail, please tag your message with a Subject line that includes the course number (e.g. Geog 309).
I will always acknowledge receipt of electronic submissions by return e-mail, generally with 48 hours. Please contact me personally if you do not receive a receipt acknowledgement.
It is very important that you keep a personal copy of any work you submit in case your first submission is misplaced.
When I have marked your assignment, I will e-mail a copy of the assignment back to you along with your mark and comments (if any).
In some cases, the file name of the assignment file that I mail back to you will be slightly modified from the file you originally submitted.
Electronic submissions of text files must be in one of the following formats:
If you submit a Word file:
I will use Word's "reviewing" features to edit and make comments on your work.
I will only edit and comment on incorrect answers. If your answer is correct, you will generally not see any editing or comments next to it. If your answer is incorrect, I will suggest a correct response and note the number of marks deducted in square brackets, e.g. [-2].
If you submit a different file type, I will make my comments in the e-mail that I return to you.
Colour is an important tool for conveying information and printing images and maps in black-and-white frequently provides unsatisfactory results. Therefore, I sometimes request that you submit colour images and maps with your lab answers. If you have access to a colour printer, you may print them out for submission. If you do not have the capability to print a colour map, you will need to submit the map to me electronically.
