The Math Exam/Education Resources (MER) is an open online learning resource hosted at The University of British Columbia (UBC), aimed at providing mathematics education resources for students and instructors at UBC. In this paper, there will be a discussion of the motivation for creating this resource on the MediaWiki platform, key features of the implementation that support student learning (including the evolution of the MER wiki from an exam database to a more-general learning resource), data on student use and response, potential for future development, and a brief description of how the project was implemented. Preliminary correlation data between wiki usage and exam performance are shared along with some preliminary data from an ongoing impact study.
