WeBWorK::Asheville May 19 - 22, 2014

WeBWorK::Asheville   May 19 - 22, 2014

WeBWorK::Asheville::2014 was held at Western Carolina University from Monday, May 19 through Thursday May 22, 2014.   Thanks very much to Geoff Goehle at WCU for organizing the code camp.  

This was a small focused code camp attended by Mike Gage, Geoff Goehle, Peter Staab, Bruce Romano, Jason Aubrey  and John Travis and devoted principally to making progress on 
  • WeBWorK 3 -- the new AJAX based interface being developed by Peter Staab
  • the install script -- automatically installing the entire WeBWorK stack being developed by Jason Aubrey

In addition we made a start on writing a grant proposal for dissemination of WeBWorK to community colleges and to high schools, worked on refining examples that use both MultiAnswers and Scaffolding (sequential or compound problems) in the same WeBWorK question, and created a first draft of a procedure to be followed when checking in new code to the repository.  

This camp  and previous code camps are supported by the NSF through a national dissemination grant to the MAA.
