    Stan Bogdanov's book, Hacking Hot Potatoes: The Cookbook, is a beautifully presented guide for teachers (or anyone else!), helping them easily create great looking Hot Potatoes exercises. It also provides links to the author’s website where he has a number of very useful, and again very beautiful, add-ons which will help students delight in doing the exercises. I am not at all familiar with html code, and so would not normally try any of Bogdanov’s enhancements. Hacking Hot Potatoes, however, takes the reader on a very well supported journey: The steps are clear, there are examples, and indeed the processes are made very simple. It is an excellent support for elearning. I recommend it very highly to all teachers using HotPotatoes as a means of enhancing learning through interactive self-paced exercises.
