Virtual Work Sessions
The WeBWorK Project is hosting three virtual gatherings this Summer to work on different aspects of WeBWorK. These are intensive 3-4 day online meetings where a small group will collaborate to make improvements to the areas of WeBWorK described below. A general goal or theme has been chosen, but the specific work will depend on the skills and interests of the participants.
These events are an excellent opportunity to contribute back to the WeBWorK community, and meet other WeBWorK enthusiasts!
The meetings will be held using Zoom, and participants should expect to spend the majority of the time on the listed dates working on the meeting. There is some flexibility in the scheduling within the listed dates to account for other commitments and participation from different time zones. A $300 honorarium will be awarded to participants.
WeBWorK Web Presence Virtual Working Meeting: June 14-16, 2021. The WeBWorK Project is hosting a virtual code camp to modernize and organize the web presence of WeBWorK. Programming skills are not required to participate, as much of the work will involve editing web pages in a number of simple formats.
OPL Code Camp: July 6-9, 2021. The WeBWorK Project is hosting a virtual code camp to expand the current OPL taxonomy to incorporate topics from the fields of Chemistry, Engineering, and Physics. Familiarity with coding problems is not required for participants, as our efforts will center on sorting and classifying existing problems.
PG Code Camp: July 20-22, 2021. The WeBWorK Project is hosting a virtual code camp to modernize and organize the PG code base which facilitates authoring of WeBWorK PG questions. Repairing and uniformizing the PG infrastructure and integrating tools for new technologies and ideas is long overdue.
