Overview The program Hot Potatoes, currently produced by Half-Baked Software, Inc., was designed to allow teachers to make interactive, Web-based exercises that can be accessed by students at any Internet capable computer terminal with a standard Web browser. Hot Potatoes uses both HTML and JavaScript; However, one does not need to know these languages to make the Web-based exercises. Instead, teachers use the program's exercise templates to create exercises on Web pages which then can be uploaded to a server where students access them. Hot Potatoes can create six different types of Web-based exercises which can stand alone or be linked to other exercises to form a sequence of tasks. Students can correct their own work based on the clues and feedback set up in advance by the teacher.

The modules Jcloze JCloze is a traditional cloze or fill-in-the-blank exercise template which allows the teacher to type in a text of any kind (paragraph, ordered-sentences, etc.), and then choose the words be left blank for students to fill in. Furthermore, a separate reading text can be entered (manually or from an HTML file) upon which the cloze-type questions can be based.

The modules Jquiz JQuiz is used to create open-ended questions, which differ from multiple-choice questions in that the student types the answer in a text-field, rather than choosing from a list of options. JQuiz allow exercises to be programmed with an unlimited number of correct answers. For example, for the question "What is the capital of the United States?" the teacher can specify "DC," "D.C.,“ "Washington," and other versions of the name as correct answers. Hot Potatoes also gives teachers the option of making answers case-sensitive, and of allowing students to see all correct answers by having a "Show Answer" button displayed.

The modules Jcross JCross can be used to design crossword puzzles with customized puzzle layout and optional clues for each word. The module begins with a blank grid template, and the teacher designs the puzzle by entering the words directly into the grid, or by simply providing a list of words. Words can run in the order of left to right or top to bottom. When finished, the module automatically crops the grid into a crossword puzzle and automatically assigns a number to each word. To see the clue for a word, the student clicks on the number in the crossword puzzle where the word begins.

The modules Jmatch JMatch allows the teacher to create matching and sequencing exercises based on two columns of items. JMatch allows for easy insertion of pictures, graphics, and images, so that the matching exercise could consist of pairing vocabulary words with the corresponding pictures.

The modules Jmix JMix is for the creation of exercises of scrambled sentences, paragraphs, or stories. Students drag and drop the sentence fragments to put them in order, or they can click on the fragments sequentially to put the text together. The teacher may add an unlimited amount of additional acceptable sentences, and can set up a warning to be shown if the alternate sentence put together by the student does not contain all of the words or punctuation of the original, preferred sentence.

The modules The Masher Hot Potatoes (Windows only) includes a program called the Masher . The Masher is a tool for automatically compiling batches of Hot Potatoes exercises into units.

You want to build HTML files from all the exercises, with the same colours and appearance settings; you also want to link the exercises together using the navigation buttons, and create an index file for the unit. The Masher will do that for you.
