Re: [seul-edu] Announce of LibLingotTeach

Hi Marcus, 

You may be interested to know about AssetML a project we started at
OFSET. As far as I can understand AssetML is a complement piece to what
you have done as it is about locating and referencing with some meta
data low level resources as images, texte, video, sound. If you want to
know more you can take a look at

You can contact directly Bruno Coudoin (bcoudoin@ofset.org), he started
the project to use it for GCompris and I can imagine it can be usefull
in other software where such low level ressources are used.

      in the hope, that it will be of interest for some readers of this list,
      I want to announce the official release of LibLingoteach 0.1.0.
      LibLingoTeach is the previous core of the LingoTeach language teaching
      application and especially designed for applications of this type.
      We made it with the goal to provide a library, which is useful for us
      (read: our project) as well as for (educational) language teaching
      projects in general.
      The current main features of the library are: 
      * Capability of using multiple so called lesson files at one time
      * Multiple language support for translations, based on a predefined
        language file
      * Basic initializing functions for the library
      * Sound playing support for ogg-vorbis files on POSIX compatible systems
      * Addition of translations (meanings) in defined user files
      * API reference for developers
      Our main goal is to provide a library, which is capable to work on
      single user desktops (using XML files as data and translation storage)
      as well as in networks using a SQL interface to receive, modify and
      store the data in a SQL database (focus is currently on PostgreSQL,
      other interfaces are in mind, too - we try to keep the interfaces as
      portable as possible). 
      Features such as mnemonics usage, learning statistics and more are
      planned, too, but no detailed concepts exist for them at the moment.
      If you are interested in more information on this, I recommend you to
      for more information about the library and 
      for the project with all its components itself.
      It would be great to hear some comments, critics, whatever else towards
      the library and project, too.
      Thanks and regards
      If you think the problem is bad now, just wait until we've solved it.
