QuizSlides is Closing Accounts - Use It or Lose It

QuizSlides is a service whose purpose is to help you build quizzes based upon your slides. I've been using the service off and on since 2012. This week the QuizSlides developers sent out an email in which they explained that they can no longer support "a high volume of concurrent users" outside of their university. To that end QuizSlides will cease support for concurrent use on August 1st. But if you haven't logged into your account at all by March 31st your account will be closed.

If you have been using QuizSlides and still want to use it for training purposes in a setting in which you will not have a high volume of concurrent quiz takers, QuizSlides will still offer QuizSlides Training. Again, log into your account keep this option active.

About QuizSlides:
QuizSlides allows you to upload PPT or PPTX files containing questions then add answer choices to create an instant-feedback quiz. The quiz can be set to allow students to try answers until they get the correct answer or the quiz can be set to allow only one try per question.

QuizSlides Leaves Beta But Subscription Fees Are Coming Soon

QuizSlides is a service whose purpose is to help you build quizzes based upon your slides. I reviewed the service back in May of 2012 when it was in beta. Today, QuizSlides sent out an email announcing that they are removing the beta label. Along with that announcement was the news that QuizSlides will be a fee-based service starting in 2014. You can continue to use the service for the rest of 2013 for free.

QuizSlides - Quizzes Based on Your Slides

QuizSlides is a new service whose purpose is to help you build quizzes based upon your slides. The basic concept is that you can upload PPT or PPTX files containing questions then add answer choices to create an instant-feedback quiz. The quiz can be set to allow students to try answers until they get the correct answer or the quiz can be set to allow only one try per question.



Applications for Education
The concept of QuizSlides isn't bad, but I wouldn't use it with elementary school students because students have to enter a captcha code before they can start the quiz. I found the captchas frustrating so I'm sure elementary school students would as well.

QuizSlides could be used with middle school and high school students to post review activities online. As a practice activity I would probably set the quizzes to allow multiple attempts at each question.
