As Robert, I really enjoyed reading/playing with your stuff.
The text is nice, and rmakes me remember old courses I had at university :)
I think that porting this to AS3 would represent an major step. The
resulting quality and performance would be amazing.
During your experimentations, if you had some nice ideas of missing features
et. or if you would like to share some of your additions, feel free to do so
I'll do my best to integrate this later, if possible.
I'l glad to see that kind of educational apps. I'd love to have this during
my studies :D
