Thanks to the open technologies around the world wide web, the authors as just college teachers have been able to develop a compact and practical online quiz system we call QDB to satisfy needs in their classes. In this paper, first we introduce our system to give ideas what the system can do. Then we show the effectiveness of the system by describing the effects of practical uses of the system in our classes for years including the effect of the recently added retry-functionality. Then as an example of the feasibility of our development we explain how simple to implement the retry-functionality because of the compactness of the system and again the great power the open technologies give us and show the speed of the system. As conclusion we suggest possibilities of a compact and flexible system as a form (or a part) of e-learning systems made to your order.
