A number of educational websites dedicated to helping students learning various East Asian languages have found a home on the Web, and Kanji Alive is one that interested parties will find rather compelling. Created at the University of Chicago, Kanji Alive is a searchable Web-based tool that is designed to help beginning and intermediate-level Japanese language learners read and write kanji. The tool consists of two interactive windows, one of which allows users to search for and select kanji, while the other one contains information on the selected kanji. The site also contains several supplementary materials, including a document that covers the history of kanji, stroke order basics, and radicals. The site also contains an important section specifically for instructors and a troubleshooting area.
