Despite the dominance of computers in our lives today, most exams across Australia are still completed using old-fashioned pen and paper. This can cause fatigue in candidates, see exam-markers expend unnecessary effort deciphering answers, and restrict curricula to topics that can be assessed by hand.

Unhappy with the status quo, a project relying on open source software, USB drives and AARNet's CloudStor service is bringing students a step closer to taking exams using their own laptops.
