Tinderbox Language Learning

J. Nathan Matias has some interesting schemes for using Tinderbox and the Tinderbox Presentation Assistant (based on the CSS magic of Eric Meyer's S5) as a tool for language learning.

Tinderbox is now a system for my language study which can be developed at the speed of type! By storing all my vocabulary, grammar notes, and translations in the same space, I can also search quickly if I don't remember the meaning of a word or concept. No page-turning or card-fumbling.

You can download Matias' notes on Wheelock's Latin, but he recommends that you use the structure, not the data; building your personal toolset is part of the process.
