* Hello, Woof Woof!

Puppies know behavior to get into one's heart.
Can your teaching do that?
WAG's hope is to encourage teaching to the heart.
* "How?", you say.
+ Help: is fast, free of guilt, when and where needed.
+ Hints: are challenges to finding a path to solutions.
+ Health: is a snapshot score to be improved upon.
+ Humor: transfers emotion and eases knowledge transfer.
+ Heart: puts personal value into the teaching process.
* Enough hooey. I want to make a test.
To communicate, you and the computer must interface.
Meet our mascot Yaml Camel who will do the heavy lifting.
Why YAML? Isn't that just an outline data structure?
Foremost, imagine dropping that cool word, even as a verb.
WAGL lists data types. WAG makes a fill in YAML outline.
Add, edit, copy, paste, and explore to make your page.
* "Just a boiler plate?" Well there's more.
WAG is open-source. Generous predecessors spur us on.
Simplicity rules here. Let your creativity flourish.
New templates, Java scripts, web cloud computing,
images, audio, video are all on your plate.

* Demo Pages

These pages are samples to demonstrate a
combination of question types with iDevice,
instructional device, activities.

The chrome browser will give the most
features while IE will give the least.

Any feed back will be appreciated.

Demo Combined Question & Study
Password demo. Only the questions and password are relevent.
Demo Known Password set as 123
Entering 123 in the password field changes the help.
Demo Password set to 321
Entering 321 in the password field give the help.

* Developer's Notes:

NOTE: These notes are here only to show that I am
getting ideas and working. NOTHING WORKS YET ;-)

How to make a question set:
  An indented outline form is helpful but it not required.

  Blanks lines in the outline are ignored.
   You may use them for organization and making pasting easier.

  \\ double back slashs makes a new line in the text.
    Note that some entries automatically give a new line.

  All spaces in front of a line are ignored.  If you want
    to force spaces use a tilde ~ for each space. 

  Anything after a colon ':' is a comment and will be ignored.
    A line beginning with a colon may also be used as a comment.
    If you use a YAML editor a colon in your text will show
    the associated text in color.
    Just ignore this.  It will print normally.
  
  Instruction
    Use this for reading text and or instructions.
    Leave this blank if not introducing a new group of questions.
    Line numbering may be used if desired.

  SlideMenuLinks
    Put a destination first. Then put the name to click on in quotes.

    /FileName.html"linkName"     for a page in this folder
    /FileName.html"Next -->"     for a page in this folder
