We are pleased to announce a new engineering collaboration between The WeBWorK Project (TWP) and Rederly. This collaboration represents an exciting new chapter by uniting TWP’s experience with Rederly’s engineering expertise.
The preliminary goal of the collaboration is to create an independent rendering environment, with the ability to add on additional modular features, such as development and authoring, collection of metadata, and easy integration with external platforms.
This modular development will expand WeBWorK’s reach by creating a standardized environment to embed and modify WeBWorK content without a full-scale installation, thereby opening opportunities to collaborate and further engage with the broader OER community.
“We are excited to collaborate with and contribute to the WeBWorK community,” said Jake Medina, Rederly CEO. “We hope this will be the first collaboration of many and look forward to working closely with TWP and the OER community to standardize and enhance this key pillar of WeBWorK.”
“An improved rendering environment is fundamental to future enhancements to WeBWorK,” said Robin Cruz, President of TWP. “TWP looks forward to working with Rederly on this project and we are pleased that Rederly will contribute this work back to the OER community.”
With one collaboration in development, TWP looks forward to an ongoing relationship with Rederly resulting in improved functionality and infrastructure for the WeBWorK platform.
WeBWorK is an open-source online homework system for math and science courses. WeBWorK is supported by the MAA and the NSF and comes with a National Problem Library (NPL) of over 20,000 homework problems.
Rederly is an open source education technology provider that collaborates closely with the OER community to build custom technology solutions. Rederly offers cloud-hosted, WeBWorK-compatible homework and exam services, including advanced features and broad faculty and student support.
