Can I just ask, what business does the lecturer have in opening an editable copy of a students work?

Even if they did that, why are they simply closing WITHOUT saving, as surely it isnt right for them to modify it anyway?

They use the editing and annotating facilities within MS Word to note down the marking decisions and make comments and feedback directly against the submitted work. Everything is submitted and returned electronically, there is no paper involved.

As a person who can lose his temper over a linked index page and page numbering in MS word, I am impressed by their knowledge of the product.
