Ironically, the initial conversations that sparked this project were about a quiz and survey system I was developing for the iPod Touch. Though Paul and I have a few differences regarding technology in language education, we agree that our students need some extra motivation to pay more attention in an active, thoughtful way. We want to keep their minds focused longer. Captur paddles and iPod Touch web applications differ quite a lot in terms of flexibility (Captur wins), record-keeping (tech wins), etc., but these factors and features are not deep differences.
