BOSS allows students to submit assignments online securely, and contains a selection of tools to allow staff to mark assignments online and to manage their modules efficiently.
The BOSS project has been funded internally within the University, with assistance from both the Department of Computer Science and from the University's Research and Teaching Development Fund.
Many people, both staff and students, have contributed both code and ideas to the project. There are too many to mention here, but major contributors include (in alphabetical order): Chris Box, Russell Boyatt, David Buckley, Ian Burnett, David Byard, Pui-Shan Chan, Lee Earl, Nathan Griffiths, Ben Hart, Markos Hatzitaskos, Pey Shan Heng, Adam Hutchinson, Paul Isitt, Harri Järvi, Mike Joy, Abi Lad-Ojomo, Raymond Lee, Michael Luck, Jonathan Pallant, Robert Pitt, Bilel Remmache, Emma Shepherd, Nick Shrine, Bill Wessel, Daniel White and Shanna Xu.
