The memory game: the cards have words ? Or pictures? So, in the editor I just type lots of words:


And then two cards are created for each word?

Or each word is associated with a picture?

How does it work?

Crosswords are hard to do. Open to suggestions but they are harder than you first think: how does the editing work, and how does the exercise get generated? How does the user enter the letters in the cells? The word search is also a  bit tricky to generate dynamically, and again, I';m not sure how the author would create / edit one?

3 ideas of word games that would be nice to have on toolkits (you'll probably answer that I'm very welcome to code them. I would if I could)

-          Memory game with a set of cards to turn until you've finished matching the pairs

-          Crosswords

-          Words hidden in a box filled with random letters
Cheers, Franck

I want to make a new toolkits zip, 1.7, file before ALT-C in September, so am going through, tidying up, adding some new models etc. This will be minor release just to synch everything up and put out the latest additions and fixes.

5 new templates in the main template:

JMolViewer, for viewing 3D models of molecular structures;
Matching Texts interaction for matching pairs of text chunks
Modify Exercise, moved into the main template form mediaInteractions. Allows the user to re-write a piece of text and compare to a model answer.
Games: Hangman. Any more ideas for games?
Google Translate tool for translating languages.

Examples are all in the page types example file:


Is there anything else you want adding?
