King Alfred is the name of both an innovative textbookand a computationalenvironmentde- ployed in parallel in an undergraduate course on Anglo-Saxon literature. This paper de- tails the ways in which it brings dynamically- generated resources to the aid of the language student. We store the feature-rich grammar of Anglo-Saxonin a bi-level glossary, provide an annotation context for use during the trans- lation task, and are currently working toward the implementationof automatic evaluation of student-generatedtranslations.
