Hey all, can anybody help the site out by throwing together a few exercises. I've just completed an exercise module which may be useful to the students. The exercise code is placed in the post at any point, there can be any amount of individual exercises for each post. This is how it works..

Example:

GxKjrE1K7wA

From the options below, reconstruct the sentence:
At first the baby is on the pillow, then the baby to stand up. As the baby gets on his feet, he makes a loud and immediately .


Here is the post code that made the above exercise
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


http://www. youtube.com/watch?v=GxKjrE1K7wA&feature=related
From the options below, reconstruct the sentence:
[test]At first the baby is "sitting|standing|holding" on the pillow, then the baby "tries|places|wanting" to stand up. As the baby "successfully|manages|realises" gets on his feet, he makes a loud "yell|fall|bump" and immediately "falls over|falls on|falls below".[/test]

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So first we start with [test]

Then we type any sentence, when you want to make a multiple-choice drop-down you simply start by using a quote " . The first option you put will always be the correct answer, the following options are seperated by the | character. When you are finished with the options you close with another quote ".

First example:

[test]this is an " Example | Cat | Tree " [/test] (Don't include all the extra spaces)
Gives:
this is an

Second example:

[test]this is a second "Example|Cat|Tree" with a second drop-down "list|apple|truck"[/test]

Gives:
this is a second with a second drop-down


whoa! these are very useful features.

Part of the text of your post is obscured, Hitch. What's that character between the options? And how did you search YouTube for an appropriate video clip?

Hi Mr.M,
Mister Micawber.
What's that character between the options?

I'm not hitchhiker, I know...:-))

But did you mean this one... | ? I don't know what's the right name of this character...(it's not so important), but you'll make him very easy. Switch your keyboard to english layout, you already have it, I know ...:-),and then press Shift+key next to backspace, on the left side.
Mister Micawber.
And how did you search YouTube for an appropriate video clip?

On the top of the youtube.com page is full text searching....Put there whatever you want. "Baby falls over"...eg. It will return appropriate videos with the entered theme.

Looking forward to your tests...:-), Mr.M.
Best Regards

Wow, very nice feature!! Great job, Hitch!

I think this is !
But how does the system recognize the right answer? I didn't mark any but it says "fabulous" is right... Does it mean that the option I introduce first (writing | | | [ /test] code) is usually the correct one?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Hi Ruslana,
RuslanaBut how does the system recognize the right answer?

Yes, it is always that first option, besides, Hitchhiker wrote it in that tutorial...."The first option you put will always be the correct answer...., "

have a nice weekend

lol

JC, you're a perfect Hitch's deputy! Emotion: big smile [y] Thanks for the answer! It seems I was so excited with the feature that didn't actually read every line of the post...
