newSLATE: Building a Web-Based Infrastructure for Learning Non-Roman Script Languages
Hopp, Marsha A.; Hopp, Theodore H.
CALICO Journal, v21 n3 p541-555 May 2004
The "newSLATE" environment provides a Web-based infrastructure for language learning. Its design and implementation were driven by the difficulties of non-Roman-script text handling. The software features a cross-platform approach to non-Roman text input and handling and a novel method for automatically generating online quizzes from study materials. The core services available in "newSLATE" include editing of multilingual text, storing files online, exchanging files between users, generating quizzes automatically from stored files, and taking quizzes for practice. It currently supports Hebrew, Yiddish, English, French, German, and Spanish, with work in process to add support for Arabic and other languages. (Contains 8 figures and 2 notes.)
