 emersonb@m... - one course, different assignments, dates, etc.  7/13/2005; 5:31:15 PM (reads: 618, responses: 1) We have about 7 sections of Calculus I, each taught by a very independent full-time faculty member. So far, I have been the only person using WeBWork, but others have also expressed an interest in experimenting with it. However, each faculty member would want to choose their own problems and have their own opening and closing dates. It seems that each faculty member should have their own course rather than having just one course for Calculus I with seven sections. Or am I missing something? Sorry if I have missed something obvious, but my searching was unsuccessful. Thanks! <| Post or View Comments |>

You can construct each course in such a way that it has a link to a common library: e.g. on our hosted.webwork.rochester.edu all courses have a link courseName/templates/rochesterLibrary ----> /webwork/rochester_problib This way each instructor can choose problems from a common library. (you can have more than one library.) If they want to modify one of the library problems they can make a local copy in their courseName/templates directory and then modify that. <| Post or View Comments |>
