Using the EXERCISE Tool


I have purchased Cinderella as I like the exercise facility (use to 1.4). I have been using 2.0 since Early August and am very vexxed by the inability to DELETE a step.rolleyes

I quite liked the "flow chart" layout, and hoped that it would be developed to allow multiple branches for alternate solutionsidea, this new layout is very hard to follow the steps.

Please let me know if I am missing something obvious please.

Cheers, Paul

Re: Using the EXERCISE Tool:: Wish list...

Here are a couple of ideas from my experience using the exercise editor...

1) Allow the use of TEMPLATE HTML files for embedding Cinderella into extisting web sites. As I regenerate the HTML then have to edit it (I run some very buggy PERL on it to convert for school use).

i.e. Create (xml) markup tags allowing this to be embedded in HTML and parsed via cinderella to generate a webpage (HTML)

<cinderella>
 <construction constructid="">
 </construction>
</cinderella>
<cinderella>
 <tools constructid="">
 </tools>
</cinderella>
<cinderella>

2) I would like the exercises to be stored externally, mainly because my use of language and relevant instructions tends to need 5 or 6 drafts, but this would also help with internationalisation (i8n) of exercises.

Cheers, Paul

Paul,

no, you are not missing anything. We rewrote the complete exercise engine, and it no indeed supports multiple branches for a solution etc, it's just that the UI for editing an exercise is far from being perfect now. Expect that there will be significant improvements for 2.1.

If you have any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear about them at bugs@cinderella.de . There are not too many people who actively use the exercise editor, so we are missing input from users on that part.
