Don't forget the paper!
We have dealt with these scanner people in the past and I found out that 
most of them sell the hardware at cost and make up their profit by 
exhorbitant fees on the sheets.  We would currently pay $0.09 a sheet 
for the one shown on the web page.  I urge people to consider the 
ongoing costs of the forms before making a purchase.

Is there a way to hook up LON-CAPA to one of the many Class-Response 
Systems with their little clickers?  These little thingies are getting 
quite popular here.  That would solve the paper entering jams. ---jim
