Hi Dan,

thanks a lot for sharing these products, looks like the students are having
a lot of fun!

The thing you describe is something ironically we had in mind all the way
back when we first started thinking about the platform. I am not quite sure
what happened with the "submissions" module along the way, I know it never
really worked the way we wanted it to. Totally agree that something like
this is necessary. Also great to be able to keep these things around for
future generations etc!
