In 2003, Irene Thompson developed a website [, removed in 2010 at the author's request] at the University of Hawai'i National Foreign Language Research Center as a follow-up to the 1998 Invitational Symposium on Assessing and Advancing Technology Options in Language Learning. The goal of the Symposium was to develop a database of multimedia language learning programs. The project also resulted in the development of comprehensive criteria for evaluating computer-delivered multimedia language learning systems. The database was, during its life, periodically updated and contained language learning software for over 100 languages. The associated document, "Checklist: Evaluative Criteria for Computer-Delivered Language Learning Systems" may be downloaded here.
