The Leiden University Old English ColloQuest

The Leiden University Old English ColloQuest is a digital, dynamic edition of an Old English text that adapts to each different learner to offer an appropriate level of challenge. The nature and number of glosses (translation aids) on the text adjust for each individual user based on the user’s answers to diagnostic questions. As such, each learner is challenged at an appropriate level. This unique tool for teaching and studying Old English is available online, for free.
