I hope this is regarded as a 'real world' application: The school in which I work has a remit to share 'home-grown' teaching and learning resources. I had previously used some footage of native foreign language speakers to produce web-based interactive quizzes (82 of them). I recently began exploring the potential of the Video iPod and have now produces a set of four quizzes based on some of the original clips and sets of multiple choice questions.

However, the use of in excess of sixty hyperlinked 'notes' has thrown up an issue to which I do not have a solution - yet!


There seems to be some sort of cache within the iPod. During testing, after I have completed one of my quizzes (and in so doing, clicked on one of several available hyperlinks on each page), if I then choose to do the same test again, the iPod 'remembers' which links I clicked and has them already selected, which doesn't make for much of a challenge! Even if I complete a different quiz, when I return to the previous ones, my answers are still selected!


Is there any way to overcome this issue?
