Whiteboard

Ready to be used now. Only needs good testing. More features can be added if desired.

TODO:

- (IMPLEMENTED) Replace name/description with question/answer
- (DISCUSSION: Is it possible to implement the TeachTypes that are used in words, and would that not take too much space?) Multiple choice (alternate teach types)?
- Fix bugs:
-- (FIXED) Website/html page as media stopped working
-- (FIXED) Check if imported file is supported
- (IMPLEMENTED) Text (.txt)/paste? as media
- (SUPERSEDED) Results dialog (replaced by universal module)
- (IMPLEMENTED) make 'media'-types extendable via modules
- (IMPLEMENTED) file format design
- (IMPLEMENTED) save
- (IMPLEMENTED) open:
- (IMPLEMENTED: using uncompressed zip by default (option to compress). Loader can open both, and recognizes automatically). Discussion: bz2 compression is slow for opening and saving media files which can get pretty big. Should we remove compression from media files? Disadvantages: significantly bigger file size / inconsistency.
