Hello all I am new to the group. As a python teacher I decided to take all the programs I have written and put them into a single application for the teacher. My inspiration... to make my life easier lol. The program is written in powershell yet it runs all python apps. The demo program will contain a cross section of the apps. The production program currently has 221 exercises and is growing daily. It allows the teacher to select the lessons from the various categories and build the actual lesson.

I don't know if anyone has created such an application. It is really unlike all of the web download stuff that you find. It is a windows app. I will be putting out a demo within two weeks.
