Textivate MATCH activities with IMAGES...

This feature has been available for quite some time, but I haven't blogged about it, so here goes:

Textivate allows you to make interactive matching activities (and worksheets) matching images with text.

Here's how it's done:

Click on the "Match" tab. 

Then add your image-to-text matching data in the following format:

[img]full link to the image file, starting with http://[/img]==your matching text

e.g.:

Simple, right?

The only problem is that you can't upload your images to textivate. They have to be hosted somewhere else online. (The examples on this page use images that have been uploaded to the textivate website for demonstration purposes.) You can use images uploaded to your dropbox -- but make sure they are your images or that you have the right to copy them!!

BUT see the info below about imgur...

IMGUR (edit 01/12/2016)

I've been having a look for an image upload site and I've been having a play with imgur. It's dead easy to use. You can sign in with your facebook login. You can create folders and add images to them by simple drag and drop. (It's quite similar to clyp for audio files.) You can set your account settings to hidden, so that your images don't appear in the general public uploads list.

Here's an example using some basic food and drink vocab / images: http://www.textivate.com/ltzjn1

Here's a link to the album on imgur: http://imgur.com/a/SWkim -- as you can see, it isn't completely private, because I can share it with you, but it is hidden and can only be accessed via the url.

Note that you have to add .jpg or .png or .gif to the imgur link for each image, so that it is recognised as a picture by textivate. (I don't think it matters which you add.)
Here's what you end up with if you create a Match resources using images:

The menu screen for the above data. >> So you get the same full range of matching activities as you get when matching text items. 

(Actually, you can combine image-to-text and text-to-text matching items in the same resource. And you can combine all of this with a text resource too!)

Here are a few embedded activities, just so you can see what it looks like:
