WIRIS Equation Editor


What is WIRIS?

WIRIS is a top-notch equation editor that WCLN has used to:

  1. build questions within math/science courses on the WCLN site.  This requires WCLN to have a license for the main WCLN site, but your district doesn't need anything for this (see settings below).
  2. allow your students to "easily" show their work (calculations) online, rather then having them scan their work for any long answer questions.  Showing Math/Science work can be challenging on a computer and WIRIS makes this  easier for your students.  If you wish to use this feature for your students, then your district needs a local WIRIS license (See http://www.wiris.com/en).

WCLN Member Licensing:

  • 200 math students + 5 teachers:         $ 200 USD
  • 500 math students + 12 teachers:       $ 468 USD
  • 1,000 math students + 25 teachers:    $ 800 USD
  • 2,000 math students + 50 teachers: $ 1,410 USD


If the ratio teacher/student is higher than 1/40, the prices change. For example:

  • 200 math students + 10 teachers:          $ 400 USD
  • 500 math students + 25 teachers:          $ 800 USD
  • 1,000 math students + 50 teachers:    $ 1,410 USD
  • 2,000 math students + 100 teachers:  $ 2,530 USD

Also be aware that if you want a global license for MathType for MS Word & Google Docs in addition to their Moodle, they can get it with a small additional surcharge on these prices.

 For the communications, please address your SDs to sales@wiris.com

    WCLN Member Support Notes - Member Sites:

    1. All members need Item #1 (ie. you need to be able to see all math/science database questions).   To ensure this is good-to-go on your site, install the plugin:  https://moodle.org/plugins/filter_wiris    This is FREE and doesn't require any licensing.
    2. If your local staff and/or students will want to build equations using WIRIS (a great option if your budget allows it), then you will also install the WIRIS editors and contact WIRIS/MathType for licensing.

    Summary:  EVERYONE should install the filter plugin. Those who want to pay for equation editing should also install the editors and get licenses.
