Music Technology Presentation by Karen Garrett
January 20, 2006

June, 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.

Jan. 2006
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.
