As some of you already know, I have some "courses" which are not intended for students but to showcase some Hot Potatoes exercises for teachers. One of them is English Grammar Exercises.
My problem has been to present them in a way that is both user-friendly for visitors (teachers who want to poke about and look without completing exercises) and also avoids the "scroll of death". Though I've been using QuizPort successfully to present my "real" courses to "real" students for a long time, I've found that it doesn't work very well with "showcases". In QuizPort, if visitors don't log in, they can't see the exercises unless they know to click on "Preview". Not intuitive at all. For the moment, most of the exercises in English Grammar Exercises are presented through the Hot Potatoes Module, even though it results in a very long web page, because the exercises are easy for visitors to see.
So now I've started to present the exercises as "native" Hot Potatoes (simple html pages) through the Book module. This avoids the scroll of death by neatly grouping exercises on a given topic and means I can also add "Introduction" pages and Flash video tutorials. But.... it also entails the use of absolute links. The simple html pages are just that: once in them you lose the Moodle page. Stan, in answering another person, provided me with the tip to always provide a back button so people can find their way back to Moodle. However, as I have several sets of linked exercises, I've felt it necessary to provide a "Menu" link back to Moodle in each separate exercise. I don't know how to do it except as an absolute link. I've also felt it useful to provide a link to a Flash video tutorial. Also an absolute link. (Not having verbose instructions in every exercise, really makes them look so much clearer and neater.)
Sorry for the lengthy lead-up to my question: Is there any way I can avoid absolute links? I'm not planning on moving the course to another platform, but if I did all the absolute links would be broken... and I have hundreds of exercises.
Or is there another, completely different, way of achieving my objective?
Here's an example of one of my Books: Number tables exercises.
