In my case, it was the complete lecture notes (my notes are now at
about 200 pages if printed, and many students would print most of
them), code for various interpreters, and homework solutions.  But any
text can be added (dynamically too).

There's not much to put for a test -- it's basically just a directory
with any files you want to put in, and an empty file (or files) that
the students will edit as their answer.  The "Running the Server and
the Clients" sections describes what to put in it.
