Next time, before you waste 20 minutes writing a long complicated email to a student[1] to help her find the right button on the web page so she can resubmit an assignment[2], check to see whether she has actually managed to upload said assignment.


The student in question had sent a panicky and confused email, explaining that she couldn't resubmit because she couldn't see a resubmit button. I had written a calming and detailed reply, only to realise (fortunately before sending the message) that she must have had another go after emailing me and that this time she had been successful.

It would have been nice if she'd then dropped me a quick line to say, "Panic over, all is now well," but she didn't.
