The University of Cape Town is in the process to migrate its course contents from a disparate number of learning management systems to the new Vula system. As the management of course contents is often done using different systems through various interfaces, Vula will be providing a common solution to all elearning needs at UCT.
However, Vula does not currently provide a tool that allows the creation of marking guides and the subsequent use of such a marking guide for inputting marks and comments as feedbacks to students.
This report describes the process of creating such a tool - the Vula Marking System , as it aims to solve the above problem, using J2EE and JavaScript Technologies, and essentially acts as a single entry point for all input of marks into Vula.
