Pages

"Page" is the general term for any exercise or information file uploaded using one of the supported authoring packages. Quandary, TexToys and the Hot Potatoes (JBC, JMix etc) can only upload their own exercises, but the Masher can upload a wide variety of other file types, including web pages, image, audio and video files, and PDF documents. You can use the Masher to add extra resource materials to your hotpotatoes.net classes, in addition to the exercises provided by the Hot Potatoes themselves. For information on uploading, see Uploading Pages.

To see a list of the Pages you have uploaded, click the Pages option on the Account Management page.

This displays each Page's Title and Description - you enter these when you upload the Page from Hot Potatoes or from the Masher, and they are displayed on your students' screen when they log in to their student account. It also shows the date on which the Page was uploaded, and a list of the "assets" which it uses. For more information about Assets, please see the Assets page.

Editing a Page

Each entry in the list of Pages includes links for Editing and Deleting the Page. Selecting the Edit option allows you to change the Title or Description of the Page. Please note that any changes you make here do not affect the exercise content, or the title as it appears at the top of the exercise page - these can only be changed by editing the exercise in the original authoring program, then re-uploading it. Instead, when you Edit a Page within your Teacher Administration area, changes affect the Page's title and description as shown in the Pages list on the Account Management page, and on the Student login page.

Deleting Pages

When you Delete a page, you also delete all Results associated with that Page. Make sure that you download and store any Results you want to keep before you delete the exercise Page. See the Results section for more details. Note: a page uploaded using the Masher will never have Results associated with it, because it is not an exercise.
