Another tools I was directed to, which looks promising but not open nor
completely free, is Quizlet. I created an account and it looks like it
has a ton of user uploaded lessons. We could probably quickly create a
free opensource version of that, allowing teachers and students to
upload and share lessons and progress via their shared Google storage,
or something similar.
