FlipQuiz Adds a New Timer Display Option

FlipQuiz is a nice tool designed to make it easy for teachers to create and display Jeopardy-style review games. I initially reviewed FlipQuiz last spring. This fall FlipQuiz added a couple of handy new options.

First, you can now display a timer along with your FlipQuiz game board. The timer's default setting is to count down for 30 seconds, but you can set it for any length of time. Displaying the time will make it easy for students to see that they are all getting equal amounts of time to answer a question during the review game.

The second free enhancement added to FlipQuiz this fall is the addition of game board sharing options. Previously you could embed your game board into a webpage. Now you can also share a direct link to your game board through email, Facebook, and Twitter.

Getting started with FlipQuiz:
To create a FlipQuiz game just register for a free account then select "new board." Your new board will have six columns and five rows, but you do not have to use all of the columns and rows and you can add or subtract questions at any time. To create your questions simply type in the question and answer boxes. When you're ready to use your game click the "presentation view" to display it through a projector. Try a demo quiz on the FlipQuiz homepage to see how the presentation view works.

FlipQuiz is free to use for text-based questions. A premium plan is available if you want to use images in your questions or answers. FlipQuizzes that you create in the free plan are automatically shared into the public gallery of quizzes.
