Beowulf Interactive guides the student through a modernized reading of a 19th century translation of the Epic, complete with audio, glossary, maps, images, and of course questions. It divides each of the three Beowulf episodes into three parts, and each of the nine parts can be completed in about 20-30 minutes.
The interactive program gives students a complete context for the work, quizzing them on map locations and the literary devices used by the Beowulf poet.
Students create logins and their data is tracked, grades can be taken from their scores, which can be printed out, and the administrator can set the number of questions per part as well as their difficulty. Students can also login in pairs and work together through the epic.
Beowulf Interactive is a program that can be installed on any Windows computer and on as many stations as you like--or just run from a server. Upon purchase, you receive a link to the downloaded setup file and the key code.

I really enjoyed building this program for my students (the audio for the text is in my voice) and I think your students will enjoy it as well.
