Hot Potatoes is a powerful resource for producing a range of interactive activities.

All you need to do is enter the data for your exercises (questions, answers, responses etc.), and press a button. The program will create the Web pages for you, if needed. They can then be uploaded them to one of our websites.

Alternatively, you can PRINT paper versions of your exercises. The choice is yours.

You can include your own images, or images from our Image Galleriers, such as www.webucate.org . This will eliminate any problems with copyright issues.

Hot Potatoes is free for use by state educational institutions which are non-profit making, on the condition that the material produced using the program is freely available to anyone via the WWW.
