New question type: Language flashcards interfaced with OpenWords
http://www.openwords.org/ has an API (linked from homepage) with the possibility to ask for a translation from any language to any other language.
Although incomplete, the database itself is built on Wiktionary and other creative commons sources, which means we could use it or host a copy of it.
The idea for the language flashcards is to have a word appear and ask the student to write a translation, then check it with the openwords database.
In designing the test, the job should be very easy for the teacher: just input a list of words, an origin and a destination language, a score per question, and Chamilo will automatically create one question for each word given an connect to OpenWords for the answers.
To the student, the flashcards should appear as a coloured card with the word written in big letters, and below that, a field where he can write the answer.
Later on, this could be extended to include spoken words and re-edition of questions one by one but that's not the point now.
