Hi Mark,

Yep, this is a weird time.

For examinations, LON-CAPA works very well with Examity, https://examity.com - nicely integrated, and from all the experience with years of MSU-classes, Examity knows very well how to handle LON-CAPA.

I am putting together template classes for algebra-based and calculus-based physics with all content materials included. I thought it would be very nice to “come to the rescue” for physics colleagues across the country. Unfortunately, I am only making very slow progress, since we have been extremely busy for long hours here at ETH.


- Gerd.
