From anywhere on the site, you can choose the “New Board” button in the top navigation bar. From your dashboard, you can also select “Create a Quiz Board”.
Bonus: If you’re already logged in right now, you can also click this link → Create a New Board
The very first thing you’ll notice is a large form field asking you for a title (required). This will serve as the main identifier for your quiz board. It will be displayed on your dashboard, in search results, and at the top of your presentation and flash card views. It will also be taken into consideration for the page’s URL.
You may add up to 6 categories on your quiz board. It is not necessary to use them all if you do not need to. Any unused category titles will simply be omitted from the game board. (Note that choosing not to give a category a title will not hide the entire category’s questions/answers, just the title.) To switch between the categories, simply click on the tabs across the top of the category title area and fill in the category form field.
At this point, you are ready to write some questions and answers. For each category, you may include up to 5 questions. As with the categories, any question boxes you leave blank will simply be omitted from the final game board, allowing you to potentially have just 3 categories with 4 questions each (or any other combination of 1-6 categories and 1-5 questions).
You may also choose to include answers to these questions, depending on the intent of your game board. If you want to review in class, you will probably want to include answers. If you want to assign the board as a homework assignment, you may not.
If you choose to include an answer alongside a question, a “Reveal Answer” button will be available inside the game board that will allow you to do just that, show the answer.
If you need to add any board source references, reminders, or other notes, this is the place to do so. These will be shown on the overview page, but not in the gameplay mode.
To make your boards easier to spot within your dashboard, you can categorize them. This can be utilized in many ways, for example as a way of separating boards for class periods, separate subjects, or organize boards based on whether they have answers or not. The possibilities are endless.
You can include as many categories as you would like for each board. These should be comma-separated to be recognized as individual categories.
To further recognize your boards at-a-glance, you can upload a thumbnail image that will be displayed on your profile page and in search results. This image can be any JPG, PNG, or GIF image that is smaller than the allotted file size.
To upload an image, simply drag it to the box from your computer’s file system or click on browse to find an image on your computer.
This might be the most important step! To complete the process of creating your board, you will need to click “Save” at the bottom. Without this, you will lose any unsaved information. (You will be alerted if you try to move away prematurely, but this isn’t guaranteed to prevent all content loss.)
Save your board and you will be good to go!
