This form is used to register all institutions using WeBWorK except institutions whose courses are being hosted on MAA servers. If your courses are being hosted by the MAA, MAA staff will handle registration (contact Rajiv Sood <> if your site is not listed on the WeBWorK_Sites page).

Below are instructions for filling out the form.

  • For "University" enter the formal name of your institution (e.g. University of California, Berkeley).
  • For "Active" select "Yes"

Then take the "Human Test" and submit the form. Look at the page WeBWorK Sites and your institution should appear in the listing of all WeBWorK sites. At this stage someone at MAA has to enter additional information for your institution to appear on the pin map. Soon we hope the form will be updated so that you can enter the required information as follows:

  • For "Lat Long" enter the Latitude and Longitude of your institution using the format 43.112889,-77.633944. The best way to find this is to search on Google Maps for your institution, right click on the resulting pin, select "What's here" and then copy and paste the numbers that appear in the search text box.
  • For "Hosted Server" enter the word "server" (without quotes) if the server listed above is operated by your institution. If the server is being operated by another institution, enter for example something like "hosted at University of Oregon".

If you have any difficulty contact Arnie Pizer <>.
