Hi Everyone,

I thought the group might be interested in a video I recorded on how Mathematica documents are a great fit for a Course Management System. The thoughts on why certain aspects of Mathematica are so valuable for students might be interesting; and this also might be a great answer the next time someone in your department asks why you like Mathematica so much!

We'd love to hear thoughts on the most valuable things we could do to improve the workflow with something like Blackboard or Moodle.

thanks,
Kelvin

Thanks for the great video and the excellent ideas.

I'm doing similar things with creating questions, though I do things a little differently.

I have Mathematica create the questions, but save them to question banks.

I pull questions for tests and quizzes and practice from these banks.

Having the actual files means I can add comments, extended solutions, etc. as I use them.

I am certainly interested in any "utilities" or programming tips on creating "infinite" questions.
