learnSTAT is now open source

I've been teaching a Statistics course at USC for a few years now and so, being the geek that I am, I decided a couple of semesters ago to write some course management software in Rails. I've worked on it on and off since then and I would consider it to be in a semi-usable state at this point. I've used it in my last two semesters without major problems.

The features at this point are

  • course announcements
  • course documents
  • ability to assign multiple choice quizzes
  • quiz statistics, including per question
  • ability to add exam grades
