The typical student using the software is in his/her first or second year. The student will be using MarkUs for submitting assignments, viewing marks, forming groups. Initially, the student is not familiar with MarkUs and the process it supports. However, he/she will be using the software on a regular basis for submitting assignments and other course-work. Although the student is typically very computer-savvy, the software should be very easy to use since the student has to hand-in his/her assigned course-work by using the software.
