Quizzes are a great tool for adding much needed interaction during long presentations or testing learners that they have actually understood a topic. I’ve seen quizzes and interactive voting applied in lessons and conferences and when done correctly, this can really engage your audience. The following a list of online software I have used previously but by no means is a comprehensive list of all quiz software that is out there. I have focused on Free and Freeium HTML5 platforms that will let you create online quizzes without charging you a penny.
Kahoots lets you create fun learning games in minutes – its clean interface and well layed out design lends itself to well to mobile devices. Once you have created your interactive quiz, a link can be generated and sent out to students to invite them to play. In my opinion the best use case for Kahoot is to be played live in a classroom whilst covering a presentation. You could use it at the start of a topic to check existing learners knowledge on a subject and stimulate conversation or at the end of section to confirm its sunk it. Either way, its fun and friendly design is suitable for all ages and designing the quiz is very straight forward. One thing to note maybe if you are divided your group into teams only one student would do the actual selection or inputting and the scores are calculated on how answered first been the contestants.
- It’s flexible In a few minutes, you can create a learning game for all ages, any topic. Kahoot! is even played in gym classes!
- It’s simple Kahoot! works on any device with an internet connection. For players, no account or login is required to join a game.
- Kahoots are best played in a group setting, like a classroom. Players answer the questions on their own devices, while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson. It creates a ‘campfire moment’ encouraging players to look up and celebrate together. Besides creating your own kahoots, you can search among millions of existing games.
- Social learning promotes discussion and pedagogical impact, whether players are in the same room or on the other side of the globe. After a game, encourage players to create and share their own kahoots to deepen understanding, mastery and purpose, as well as engage in peer-led discussions. When a learner becomes a leader, that’s a true magic moment!
