Project Description
Wicket presents user created course lessons, grade tracking, and administration for nearly any material.

Based on a university course training suite released into public domain.

Elements preceding/composing Wicket have been used by U.S. State Dept. and U.S. Dept. of Commerce.



Wicket, at base, is a collection of programs that present both interactive and static course materials, either for grading purposes or review.

Wicket had its origin in a courseware suite called BACourseware that was used for 8 years at the Texas Tech University Rawls College of Business.  Due to state budget cuts, the program was discontinued, and the code base was placed in the public domain.  Elements of BACourseware were also used to provide a training program for the U.S. State Department in a SCORM compliant package.

Wicket is a restructuring of BACourseware based on lessons learned throughout the years, and will initially contain many of the concepts that were considered for the 3rd version of the program.  Additional capabilities will be added beyond that.

Initial Goals

  • Wicket will be available as a standalone web application.
  • Wicket will be available as an ASP.NET system control, embeddable in an ASP.NET page.
  • Wicket presentation and scoring will be available as a combination of HTML, JavaSctipt, and Web Services.
  • Wicket will have a SCORM compliant component.
  • Wicket will have WinForm and/or console applications to provide additional admin or instructor capabilities.
