Hello Finn,
That's interesting. I can see special notation on the wiki for the
questions. Is that how the QuizComposer works or is there a separate

My idea is to build a nice forms type editor, similar to "SurveyMonkey",
"GoogleForms" and that style, where you get a WYSIWYG question editor. It
has to be super-easy to use.

Maybe OpenTest could have an *export* option to the Wikiversity notation.
