Creating complex SentenceBuilders - a fabulous video guide by Julia Morris (@JuschMo)

SentenceBuilders subscriber Julia Morris has produced a REALLY USEFUL video user-guide for users of, which she has shared via her YouTube channel.

It is aimed at those users of the site who wish to use the authoring options to create their own SentenceBuilders (which, to be fair, is most of the teacher subscribers...)

Julia's guide deals with most aspects of creating your own resources, including:

  • Clearing data to start a new resource
  • Hints on adding content, including capitalization, etc.
  • Using the various SB tools to add rows and columns, split and merge cells etc.
  • Factors influencing SB design
  • Colour-coding of SB cells
  • Understanding "flow" (in-depth explanation with examples)
  • Adding vertical columns to enable "flow"
  • Excluding "impossible" routes / enforcing certain combinations (cell exclusions)
  • Using the "SB routes / Cell combos" pop-up
  • Using the Transformations pop-up
  • Excluding certain words from gap-fills
  • Introduction to vocab chunks and TTS transformations
  • "Verify now"
  • Uploading your resource

Here's the video. Enjoy!

Julia's video guide is a really good accompaniment to this (written) user-guide: "Creating [complex] interactive SentenceBuilder machines that work"

Hope you find this useful :o)
