   78  <p>
   79  Below is a list of frequently asked questions.  Well, they are a mix of
   80  questions that are frequently asked and questions that may eventually
   81  qualify as frequently asked.
   82  </p>
   83  <ul>
   84    <li> <a name="hosting"></a>How do I apply for hosting?
   85      <br/><br/>
   86      With funding from NSF-DUE 0920341 the MAA offers limited hosting of
   87      WeBWorK courses for faculty in the mathematical sciences. Hosting will
   88      be limited to 100 students per institution.<br/><br/>
   89 
   90      Institutions or faculty who need more substantial hosting are encouraged
   91      to explore installing WeBWorK on your own server. WeBWorK is open source
   92      software and is available for download. If you are considering
   93      downloading WeBWorK, we encourage you to connect with the IT support on
   94      your campus as well as the WeBWorK user forum.<br/><br/>
   95 
   96      By providing this service our goals are to develop a sustainable
   97      hosting capacity, to continue development of WeBWorK, and to make WeBWorK
   98      easier to use and a more effective instructional tool. As a condition of
   99      hosting, you may be asked to provide feedback on your experience.<br/><br/>

  105 
  106      WeBWorK is used by over 300 colleges, universities and high schools. A
  107      map and list of those institutions is available <a href="http://webwork.maa.org/wiki/WeBWorK_Sites">on the wiki</a>.

  172        The WeBWorK project not only provides an extremely useful pedagogical tool,
  173        but as an open source project is not bound to one textbook or  publisher, and so
  174        embodies the flexibility to be tailored to each adopter&quot;s  needs. No commercial
  175        product can offer this kind of fine tuning. I have heard publishers pitch their products
  176        which have similar capabilities, but they inevitably pale by comparison.
