Hello there, I hope I'm not wasting your time but I need to ask these question to minimize time consumption. Is there any certificate or diploma and credit? How can I find the exam if there's any? I'm new here so I need to know as well as other things necessary. Thanks very much!

Agreed with Graham's 5 years ago. It still requires a log in, but there is no obvious means by which to create a log-in account.

The material is good to provide additional practice to the students learning to draw shear force and bending moment diagrams. However, the basic concepts regarding shear and moment must be taught in class. The software is easy to use. It also has a checker which gives hints. Overall, a good software. Not sure if students will be able to login or create account easily. It will be helpful to provide a link for students.

Excellent, but can be a little tricky to use. I would say that a demonstration in class before using it might help a lot.
