K Learning Aid

Depends on  KDE 3.5.x
Downloads:  5005
Submitted:  Dec 7 2004

Description:

Klaid - K Learning Aid
Pops up kvtml file items on the desktop. Use KWordQuiz or FlashKard to produce
kvtml files and load them into Klaid. It will grab all complete n x m
related items (e.g. "Question" and "Answer", or "Word A" and "Word B") and
displays them periodically as PopUps on the desktop. It is like someone is
sitting behind you making sure you know all the terms for your next exam or
test while surfing the web, coding, or whatever.

Installation
Download the beta installer, make it executable. Double-click the installer and follow the instructions. Supported distros: only Kubuntu Edgy and openSuse 1.0.2/KDE so far, please report install success on other systems, thank you.

Working now. Not bad, but I thought that it would only show the question part of the quiz, and hide the answer until you click on a "show answer" button or something.
I guess I didn't expect it to simply pop up with both the question and answer.

So are you simply intending this as a tool to help memorize information?

Further suggestion: associate a sound event with the pop-ups, and keep track of correct answer percentages (if you choose to go that route).

Thanks for your contribution.

Thank you for your suggestions, I will think about them.

But I would like to focus on some internal things first before implementing new features. KConfig is on my agenda, some Documentation and so on.

 Needed update

Score 50%

Hi,

first sincerely thanks for your program. Really useful. But, ...

As I am studying chinese I need some adaptations on your program. To insert those modification you may integrate them by inserting selection settings options.

Let me explain :
When you have question you may have one response. And then for studying you may display one or more answer (one good and some bad).
In chinese we may display the chinese word, the similar term with european characters (called pinyin) and the translation. To study it it could also be interresting to display (randomly if set in the settings options) ; the chinese character, his similar european character pronounciation (called pinyin) or the translation.
Then when a question is asked it is also usefull to display the both other corresponding fields.

If you don't understand I can send you a private e-mail to show you the idea to help people who are studying languages like chinese, japan, korean, arabic, ... all they use some special characters.

Is it also possible to use fields (question to use by klearn Aid) coming from open office (writer or calc) if they are saved as coma separated values ?

Have a nice day and good continuation.

Thanks.


Miguipda ;-)

Hi there,

thanks for your response.

KLAid is a passive learning aid, so it would not make much sense to enhance popups with multiple choice options where users have to take action.

You are right, having a dedicated multiple choice program for KDE would be nice, I agree with that. I'll take your idea into consideration for one of my next projects. See you! :)

Hi,

I'm now using KLAid to do something similar with Japanese.

I've solved your kind of problem creating a particular 'KLAid dedicated" kvtml file: in this file I use the kanji and its kana representation as the "question", and it's romanization(s) (pinyin equivalent) and meaning(s) as answers.

I don't think KLAid should do quizzes, since that would be too much distracting. You shoud use kwordquiz directly to do that, IMHO :-)


Ciao,
Roberto

 Saving session data?

 
 by RobM on: Apr 21 2005

Hi,

What's the ETA for adding session data saving to KLAid, so that every time it starts it remember quiz file, timings, font size, etc?

Or, am I the only one having this problems? :-) I have KDE 3.4


Ciao,
Roberto

Hello Roberto,

as far as I know you're the only one, since session management has been integrated some time ago. :)

Please check for a file named ~/.kde/share/config/klaidrc

That's where session data is being saved. Check for file and dir permissions. I'm curious what the problem is... :)

I've did a test just now.

The session was mostly incomplete (no [cfg] section in the rcfile).

Then I started klaid, configured things, quit it, and voilà now it works: [cfg] is there with all the info and on program restart all is right.

Previously I only quit the progran during KDE logoff. It seems that during logoff the program didn't get a chance to save its config before being terminated.

Thanks :-)


Ciao,
Roberto

Sorry for my poor english.
The newest version of Klaid,0.7.6beta, at the make process gives following error:

In file included from main.cpp:21:
klaidwidget.h:25:29: klaidwidgetbase.h: Doesnt exist this file or directory

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
