Mobile platforms and cloud computing allow collaborative sharing and submission of work in ways not feasible until recently. In this article, we detail how we took a writing-intensive laboratory and made the submission, reading, grading, and returning of student work online and paper-free, while maintaining familiar elements of pen-and-paper grading that many find appealing. Students appreciated the flexibility and reduction in costs, while instructors enjoyed the portability, flexibility, and inherent organization of the workflow.
