When it comes to paying for this, we believe that there is no “one size fits all.” Different institutions in different countries operate differently, and we thus present a number of options for covering different modes of running the same system – including completely free or hosted, as with the current LON-CAPA – we are not taking away options, we are adding new ones.
Commercial options would be handled by CourseWeaver Corporation, a company that already is providing hosting, services, and support for the current LON-CAPA.
