Ugandan Physics past papers, Licenses

Would it be possible to upload any exam papers of past years? Exam papers are always extremely relevant to students and teachers.--White Eagle 08:05, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Here are some Ugandan Physics past papers vkizza
Hey, Wow, Vincent, this is really great! You have access to the source code of these exam papers! I think this is material that will attract people! I see for the first look, that your exams are manly about definitions, notions and concepts, some formula and simple calculations with some relations to applications. Let me have a closer look the next days! I'm just brainstorming about developing solutions to these problems, or even automatize the responses. Using the exam functions of Moodle would offer the possibility to correct the responses given on-line automatically. So to create a training platform for those who run for the final exams. The thing is, that we have to start working on those subjects that are most inclined to attract users, in order to get more co-workers. But one thing still, do you have free license for these papers or is it piracy?--White Eagle 07:56, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Im my country,when exam papers come out,they belong to the category of "public domain" and can be used for any non-commercial purpose such as ours here in the wiki. So no need to worry,except only when the results for that year have not yet been released. BTW,the national exams are now going on untill 14th November...and then another session of the pre-university up to Dec 8th. After the exams,many teacers will go to mark and the majority of teachers do so,as they hope to make some "quick buck" for the christmas season,this will of course affect us a little bit as we will have to wait for more to join us. But they will surely do. Otherwise, I think developing solutions to the exam question is great idea that will certainly make both the teachers and students want to come back. vkizza3:20 pm,14 Oct 2008

Hi Vincent, we have to have in mind that in the usual WE license commercial use is not excluded. To bring it to the point, any publishing agency could print out the materials directly from WE and sell them. And this would be o.k. with WE. You still feel comfortable?--White Eagle 09:46, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
Hi Vincent, now I've got the idea that you could put these papers under a CC-NC-SA license, that means that commercial use would be excluded. --Günther Osswald 08:02, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

(Comment.gif: Hi Guys ~ great conversation here....why don't you make a general post to the main WE list as well as the Community Media group to talk about your collaboration, and see if you can get additional resources --Randy Fisher 08:50, 11 October 2008 (UTC))Community_Media--White Eagle 07:56, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

(Comment.gif: Hi Randy, thanks for bumping in! That gives me the feeling of wide world! But WE l i s t ?--White Eagle 07:56, 14 October 2008 (UTC))

Hi Randy,great suggestion! What do you say White Eagle? vkizza

As we concentrate on Uganda, I'd say let us find ways to mobilize co-workers from there. Florence f. ex. has found us and others will follow. But if you like to start such an initiative, go ahead, its the wiki way. --White Eagle 08:00, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
