Flash quiz on PSP continued...

Well, I guess I'm going to have to get an online software written to allow people to upload a list of multiple choice questions and output a swf file that will play on the PSP. It's a gap in the market! However, along the way, I've learned a lot of interesting stuff and come across some very useful links.

In terms of putting files on the PSP, if you add them to the /COMMON folder on the PSP, this site has a nice web page that allows you to list all the files in that folder and select it.
The site also has some useful educational Flash games (and some less useful but fun games) that will work on the PSP.

Sums Online, needless to say, are the number one for providing lots of useful Maths and Language activities for mobile devices, including the PSP:
You can play some free games online and you can also purchase them for offline use on the PSPs.

Adventure Maker is brilliant! There is a lot of potential - asking the learners to create own 'games' for the PSP would extend learning tremendously.

This last one will no doubt now take up a lot of my time inventing ways of using it in FE! I'm thinking a tour of the kitchens, car workshops, etc...

While researching stuff for the PSP, I've had to install Windows (7) on my Mac using Parallels, only to find I should have tried boot camp that comes free with Snow Leopard. Ah well. And now having to fork out nearly £100 for extra RAM for the Mac. Would it have been just as cheap to just get a netbook with Windows 7, lol?
