SBL International - Davar: Biblical Hebrew Vocabularies
Blogging this from Sydney Airport on my way to SBL in Singapore. Apart from the paper on Amos 7 (= 7:1-8:3 but who's counting?) I am also sharing one with my colleague Lynne Wall to present Davar: Biblical Hebrew Vocabularies
project. This is a really neat tool for sharing in creating multimedia vocabularies (with the words that you
need for the book your class uses) in both onscreen and printable "flashcard" formats (in the flashcards of course you lose the sound and piccies, but students can test themselves on the bus without a WAP phone).
The URL is http://cfdl.auckland.ac.nz/hebrew/
where you can test it out. The idea is that teachers who are happy with just the words we provide can use it without a logon, but those (just about anyone at the start as we only have a couple of dozen words as yet!) who want to add their own words get a login to enter data through an easy online form...
It's cool, uses XHTML and CSS, and collaborative, and useful so what more do you want? Try it out and let me know... (but expect delays as I am not staying at a posh hotel, so won't have Internet easily for the next week, unless I go to Changi airport which has fast Internet free!)
