Student uploads within quiz questions

I am looking for advice on how students could upload their answers within a quiz. The quizzes I have constructed contain different types of questions - some are self marking (multiple choice etc.), some are essay answers and some involve drawing, measuring and plotting.


How do your students currently upload their answers that involve drawing?


I have thought of a number of ways, from scanning the document in, to photographing using mobile devices. The problem is that not all students have the same hardware available. Also if the quiz was timed it would waste valuable time for them to scan/photograph their work, especially if they have to use multiple devices.


Are students able to turn in a paper copy to their instructor, who can then add it to the quiz once it has been submitted?


I would be interested to hear how others are getting around this, workflows etc. Any advice would be really appreciated.
