This web application allows you to visually create units (such as for example exercises for an exam) and then render them inside an iframe by using its respective Unit Player. The software is still at an early stage, but documentation and descriptions of use cases are in the works. In the meantime, it is being used by the Institute for Educational Quality Improvement (IQB), Berlin.
