Gong makes use of a menu to provide additional information on any message text. You can either select a few words or simply click on a word using the mouse button to bring up the menu. It shows items linking off to various web resources. Once an item is selected the selected words are passed to the appropriate web site and displayed in a browser. For example, in the image on the right, once the item "Google" is selected from the menu the word "mother" will be passed to the google search engine and displayed in a browser.

The system does not have a fixed set of menu items. We provide a set of 20 or so useful resource links, but users (usually the teacher or site administrator) can extend or delete the resource links as they like. The system uses a two level structure to manage the menu items. You can create any different categories and put different resources in them.

The above image shows menu management inside the administration module. Using the module the web resource menu can be easily managed. For example, different items can be assigned to different categories and they can be arranged in a predefined order.

If you find that when you select one of the web resources nothing happens, then it is probably because you have a pop-up blocker. For details please see the FAQ page .
