Call for ideas: new content type 'interactive text'
I'm planning to create a new content type that allows creators to write interactive texts for second language learning. In these texts, the users can click on expression (annotated by the teacher) to receive explanations. translations or pronunciation help. They can also open collapsed sections of the text, which the creator has marked as such. Students with normal proficiency in the target language could read the shortened versions, whereas excellent students could look at the collapsed sections as well. I see the main application in second language teaching at intermediate levels in which students are presented authentic texts but still need some help when reading them.
I've created a GitHub project and written down use cases for content creators and users. I've also though about the syntax with which the creators would annotate their texts. I would be more than happy about more ideas or feedback, either here in this forum or in the GitHub issue tracker!
