History WebAssign

Teachers developed WebAssign. Aaron Titus, a graduate student in physical education at North Carolina State University, and Larry Martin, a professor of physics at North Park University in Chicago, independently developed systems of homework on the Web in the mid-1990s. In 1997 and 1998, Titus and Martin have collaborated to create WebAssign, a duty and a robust online system for managing tests. The test in several large classes, feedback from teachers and students in physics, mathematics, statistics, and chemistry has helped to broaden and refine the product.

WebAssign has been marketed since January 1998 as a hosted subscription service, providing superior performance and a common database issues under the direction of Mr. Risley. From the beginning, comments and suggestions of instructors from both schools and colleges and universities have played a crucial role in defining new features.

In 2003 the team moved Risley University Centennial Campus.
