The Tone-Review Workshop 1.0

The tone-review workshop creates javascript exercises which prompt the user to enter in the tone numbers for characters. This is most useful for languages such as Chinese which have tones.

To create a tone-review exercise:

  1. Enter a title for the page. This will be displayed at the top of the exercise.
  2. Enter a file name for the page. This will give it a unique name to keep it separate from other files. (Recommendation: Stay with small letters and don't put spaces in the file name.)
  3. Optionally, enter a comment or line of text to be displayed between the title and the actual exercise itself. For example, "This tone-review exercise is for use with dialogue two of lesson three."
  4. On each line of the "Words" enter the word or sentence you wish to have displayed in the exercise. Don't worry if the line wraps in your browser. Only by hitting the "enter" or "return" keys will OWLS recognize the beginning of a new entry. Don't leave a blank line at the end or this will possibly create a blank entry in the exercise.
  5. On each line of the "Tone-Numbers" enter the numbers (no spaces in between) for the tones corresponding to the characters in the first field.
  6. Enter the password in the bottom field and then press "Create New Page"

To delete an exercise:

  1. A list of currently available exercises is displayed to the right in the workshop.
  2. For each exercise you wish to delete, click in the check box next to the appropriate file.
  3. Enter the password in the bottom field and then press "Delete Page
