are planning to hold an informal meeting for all potential WeBWorK
developers on Friday, August 3, 2001 in Madison, Wisconsin. This date
and place coincides with the MAA's summer MathFest meeting which is
taking place August 2-4 in Madison.
A number of people have expressed interest in having a meeting of
WeBWorK users and "developers". Since Mike, Arnie, and several people
who have received NSF CCLI A&I grants for WeBWorK were planning on
attending MathFest anyway, organizing a meeting there seems like a
natural thing to do.
This meeting should be of interest to anyone who has or is applying for
an NSF CCLI A&I grant to adapt and implement WeBWorK, to people who
are interested in writing problems for WeBWorK, and to people who may
have ideas on how to improve the operation of the WeBWorK system
itself. The meeting also may be of interest to people who are just
interested in using WeBWorK but do not, at least at this time, plan to
write any problems of their own.
It's too early to put together an agenda for the meeting, but topics certainly would include:
1. Setting up some type of national library of WeBWorK problems. At
this point quite a few people are writing WeBWorK problems (and some
people are starting to write solutions for problems) and we should talk
about coodinating these efforts.
2. The general direction Mike and Arnie see WeBWorK heading in the near future.
If you would be interested in attending this meeting, please post a response to this message or send an email to Arnie Pizer (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Mike Gage (email@example.com)
