AMEA - Alabama Music Educators Association Conference in Tuscaloosa, AL
Music Technology Presentation by Karen Garrett
January 20, 2006
I have purchased several new quiz generating programs since January and have posted quizzes and information about some of the programs on this site.
Please note that I have updated the Hot Potatoes Quizzes (Version 5 and 6) for Identify the Instruments from your CD handout. The images on the CD for this quiz were not loading from the picture folder (unless you copy the 'amea_hot_potatoes' folder to the desktop on your computer).
Also, there are several new versions of quiz generating software from www.contentgenerator.net.

Hot Potatoes - http://web.uvic.ca/hrd/hotpot/index.htm
Identify the Instruments (Multiple Choice) UPDATED FROM CD Handout. Right click and save the Version 5 or 6 file to your computer. It should have a .JBC extension.
Piano Key Words (Multiple Choice with Pictures - these files can be found on your CD.)
Louis Armstrong (Multiple Choice with Reading Text - these files can be found on your CD.)
I can use Hot Potatoes 6 on our old Win 98 computers. However, the Internet Explorer browser will not display the web page. It is recommended that Hot Potatoes 6 is used on Internet Explorer 6 or higher.
