You are absolutely correct. I have noticed, though, that busy profs prefer to
use apps they are already familiar with and adding an app to look at student
work for a single assignment would most likely put them off. So, I’m wanting to
get student work in a format that can be either
What I’m thinking is that my app would allow students to write their text and
create the images. I would export the “composition” in pdf format. That would
be imported into the LMS or sent to the teacher external to my app. The teacher
could then comment on the writing either in the LMS or
Does your stack auto-save anything at any time? If power fails during a save
operation, there will be another stack file of the same name preceded by a
tilde (~). Deleting the tilde will restore the prior version of the stack file.

For getting it FROM the student, why not just use a livecode stack file. It
could contain everything and be highly editable. For returning it TO the
student you could use a pdf.

If the 'student writing' is created in some other program then wouldn't it be
I kinda like the pdf idea. Seems it would give me a way to encapsulate and
format the text and images and perhaps a fairly defined pdf format would make
it straightforward to edit it using Livecode as well.

It may not be. I've made standards-compliant courseware in the past (a
while ago; the data format was XML ), and it wasn't as bad as I'd

Oooh! For once I might make a contribution!
I had the same issue in a healthcare context. These IT systems vary
tremendously between services, are complex and often hard to connect with -
either by design, or by lack of interest in supporting other software.
