you create your quizzes, Hot Potatoes will convert the files to HTML files
which you must then upload to the server. Try the online
tutorial for windows or for the Mac

Interactive Exercise Makers
by Dan Beeby. (This quizmaker is no longer supported.) http://lang.swarthmore.edu/mellon
This automatic quiz maker resides on the Swarthmore College
server. The quizzes you make with the Makers will automatically be place
on that server. Dan Beeby has asked that we copy the documents and upload
them to our own server if students will be using the exercises.. There
are 9types of Makers; ClozeMaker, DictoMaker, EvalMaker, GlossMaker, MatchMaker,MemoryMaker,
MultiMaker, OrdMaker, and PlaceMaker. The online
demo shows you a few of them starting with the GlossMaker. Here are
some other examples made with the Interactive Exercise Makers.
