Here’s an update for the Collator software. Collator 1.3.
You’ll remember Collator is a PHP application that uses MySQL to store results collected from quizzes in your own database, on your own server. It can be run on its own, or in combination with the backup server to ensure that results are collected even if the server suffers failure.
