19:27 Paul_Pearson mgage around?  busy grading?
19:29 Paul_Pearson Here's what I'm working on:
19:29 Paul_Pearson 1. Generating GeoGebraWeb applets (i.e., creating a geogebra applet and then exporting it to html using html5 / canvas / javascript).
19:30 Paul_Pearson 2. Setting the state of the GeoGebraWeb applet.
19:30 Paul_Pearson 3. Getting the state of the GeoGebraWeb applet and feeding it to a webwork answer checker.
19:31 Paul_Pearson I think I've figured out #1 and #2, but #3 is stumping me.
19:33 Paul_Pearson For regular GeoGebra applets (the kind that use Java), we used AppletObjects.pl, which had some methods for dealing with #3.
19:33 Paul_Pearson I'm not sure that those methods are needed for GeoGebraWeb applets.
19:36 Paul_Pearson It seems to me that when a student clicks the "Submit Answers" button in webwork, it should call a javascript function that will get the current state of the GeoGebraWeb applet and pass that information to the webwork answer checker via html form input.
19:36 Paul_Pearson Is this what needs to happen, and how can I implement it?
19:37 Paul_Pearson Thanks for your help this weekend!
19:40 Paul_Pearson Hmm... It looks like AppletObjects.pl has a CanvasApplet method.  Would a GeoGebraWeb applet fall into this category?
