Sneak peek at DARIUS progress

The foundations of DARIUS are coming along nicely. Here's a screenshot of the vocabulary builder running some dummy data:

It runs in any standards-compliant web browser and can mix and match focus and response types (for example, where the above is picture & sound -> written word, you can view the lesson in any combination).

Still lots to do, and this is only one feature. There is an entire array of social networking hooks that are going to be integrated, a large digital library of learning resources with an OCR wiki so that readers can add in notes and help make the texts more searchable, as well as a distributed hints system so that users viewing the same document can chat about it as they leaf through.

Stay tuned. :-)
