The structure and content of a Web-based Glossary, Dictionary and Quiz of Information Technology terms have been generated by students themselves. Students also developed a multi-choice quiz and supplied the correct answers inside the Dictionary entries for self-testing purposes. The quiz-scoring results are for personal feedback rather than being used for overall assessment. The Dictionary has been under continuing student development over the time of its existence: critical assessment, integration, editing, testing of quiz answers and correction of included data and expansion of Dictionary and Quiz are being pursued. This student-centred responsibility for learning by teaching successors motivates students as well as being a cost-effective method of getting information.
