Create Jeopardy Games on eQuizShow

eQuizShow is a free tool developed by a junior year high school student in New York City, Henry Wilson. Henry designed eQuizShow to be a tool that teachers can use to create Jeopardy-style games online. Unlike similar tools you do not have to download or upload any PowerPoint files to use eQuizShow. On eQuizShow you can build and display your quiz completely online.

To build your quiz just enter a title, an administrative password, and your question categories. eQuizShow will then generate a grid on which you can enter questions and answers. If you don't have time to build a quiz or you just need some inspiration, browse the eQuizShow gallery.

Applications for Education
In his email to me Henry shared that eQuizShow works well on interactive whiteboards. Teachers have used Jeopardy-style games to help students review for assessments. If you have an interactive whiteboard, using eQuizShow could be a good way to display questions and answers to students during a review session.
