      I know it as a cloze exercise, but it may very well go by more than one name.

      Neat webpages. I tried out both the multiple choice identify the missing word and the hangman game. Fun stuff, and I agree they are for more advanced level students of Old Norse.

      Good stuff to know about.

It also will use a new HTML5 technique called Application caching: if your device/browser supports it. It will prompt you to download all the files for the page the first time you visit and afterwards, the app will work on your device without an internet connection. That's pretty handy for language learning tools!
