Footnotes[edit]

  1. Someday we need to make the dashboard at Wright State University Lake Campus/Phy1060-2016-1 available. Perhaps this could be done most quickly by rewriting the source code in an open source language like Python (currently Matlab/Excel are used).
  2. This page contains a collection of readings from Wikiversity and Wikipedia, sample exams for classroom use, and the bank of questions from which these exams were constructed that serves as a very student-friendly "study guide" for each exam. Instructors may obtain multiple versions of these exams for classroom use by leaving a message at User_talk:Guy_vandegrift. The "dashboard" at Wright_State_University_Lake_Campus/Phy1060-2016-1 can help the instructor supervise the students' improvement of the course by developing quiz questions (with full explanations), labs, and by editing the reading materials. With all this work done by Wikiversity, instructors will have time focusing on helping the students learn.
