Dynamic HTML Language Learning Resources

(For Windows - Netscape v 4.03+ and Internet Explorer v 4+ only)

Introduction.
As a part of the continued development of this site we have started to explore the use of DHTML as a method of delivering interactive content for both teaching and learning. Our first forays into this area are a Drag and Drop vocabulary game ;a Matching Pairs game a Cloze testing program and now Speed Word.

These have been developed using a DHTML API written by Dan Steinman at the Dynamic Duo web site and will hopefully show the way in which this new development can be used to deliver full animated, interactive content across the web without the use of plugins etc.

Drag And Drop Vocabulary Game
Game play is fairly straighforward, players are presented with a selection of ten vocabulary words or phrases drawn at random from a topic bank. They then have to match the words by dragging the appropriate translation - blue tiles - into place. When all ten tiles have been positioned, marks are awarded; time taken displayed and corrections shown. N.B. if the program initially fails to load correctly simply click on Reload or Refresh

Matching Pairs Game
There are many versions of this game on the web utilising Java and Javascript. This version has the advantage that it is easily extended to cover any vocabulary from any language.

Cloze Test
A DHTML version of the classic 'cloze' - missing words- test. This version of the script is restricted in some ways but is nevertheless a useful addition to our range of Internet based CALL software. Once again this is easily authorable for any text

Notes

pball.gif (148 bytes) Please note that these are very much work in progress. Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure that they run correctly on appropriate browsers we cannot take any responsibility for crashes and other aberrant behaviour caused by these programs or scripts. N.B. Reload/Refresh usually clears any problems

pball.gif (148 bytes) The game may be easily adapted for other vocabulary lists/texts. Non profit making educational users are welcome to do so provided the orginal sources are acknowledged. If you do adapt these for other lists, please let me know and I'll add a link. Notes on doing this will be here available shortly.
