Although we don't have a formal project in the works at the moment, our thinking is that at some point we may have a project that involves digitizing historical exams, and collecting and moving more recent exams into Preservica, which we have started using as our long-term digital preservation platform - http://preservica.com/.

With Preservica we can set a collection policy based on date of the material so that more recent exams are locked down while historical exams would be available publicly for research.

Currently the exams we have are available through our ILS.

Subject: [teknoids] Exam archive platform?

We're looking to migrate our exam archive away from its current custom application and into something more easily managed/maintained. What are other schools using these days to host their bank of old exams? I've seen/previously used an ILS e-reserve system—not a viable option for us—and various Learning Management Systems—we have Canvas, but it's interface doesn't really do what we need. What else is there (other than building a new custom application in Drupal, Wordpress, or some other framework)?
