ClassWeb was designed to let instructors easily create and control class websites. We learned a lot. We made a lot of mistakes. Think of this open source distribution as a "full-disclosure" of how we did what we did. To make use of it, you will have to create your own database and alter our templates to fit your needs.   Where it's possible to use only certain modules on their own, we make note of that on the Download page. ClassWeb is freely distributed under the GNU Public License.
