❔ What’s it for?
So what’s the point of RapidQandA then? There are loads of great online quiz
generators out there: Kahoot and Quizizz
for example. Surely, we don’t need another one?
RapidQandA is different. It has three distinct features:
- Speed: quickly writing down your lesson in plain text is faster than clicking
in a fancy UI. It might not seem it at first, but once you’ve got to grips with
it, you’ll be flying.
- Autorun lessons: these are simple files that can be shared anyway you like. Students can
just open the file and run the lesson.
- Privacy: there are no accounts and no log ins — nothing. We’ve all got enough
online accounts and we probably don’t want any more.
What can I use it for?
These are probably the three main uses of RapidQandA:
- to play lessons that have been created by someone else or from the built-in
library. The built-in library is under construction at the moment, so you’ll
have to wait a bit. Sorry!😥
- to create lessons for someone else to use.
- to create lessons for yourself or others.
Why would I want to play someone else’s lesson?
Perhaps it was sent to you as an assignment by your teacher. Perhaps,
something in RapidQandA’s library (when it arrives 😉) interests you.
Why would I want to use it to create a lesson for someone else?
Perhaps you want to create a quiz about some topic for your students. You
haven’t got much time, so you need a quick method. No need to worry about
data protection or creating accounts. Your students will just be able to run
the lesson file you send.
Okay! Why would I want to create a lesson for myself?
One reason might be to help you revise for a test. You can create a personal
lesson to help drill a topic into your memory. You can also include
questions to test your understanding as an alternative to using flash cards.
