John Dalziel's curator insight, November 23, 2013 5:28 PM

ExamTime has created a comprehensive personalised learning environment (PLE) system that allows practitioners to create and work on their own resources, as well as sharing and updating their fellow practitioners and learners as a whole.
ExamTime has four major study tools that can be used by everyone. These are...
- Mindmaps,
- Flashcards,
- Quizzes and
- Notes.
A perfect blend of tools that are versatile enough to cover areas of study.
Used in face-to-face sessions, or as study aids for practitioners and their learners.

John Dalziel's curator insight, November 15, 2013 5:11 PM

A new tool developed to enable practitioners to quickly gather feedback from learners.
Quiz Socket enables them, the learners, to respond to questions via their cell phones, tablets, and laptops.
A unique quiz code is assigned to the practitioner who in turn, gives that quiz code to their learners to enter on the QuizSocket website.
Practitioners can then deliver multiple choice questions to learners either...
verbally or
by posting them on a whiteboard
...controlling the pace of the quiz by simply clicking "next question" to move the quiz along.
Quiz Socket doesn't require users to register and they can get a quiz up & running on the spur of the moment. Quiz Socket could be useful for running a quick prior knowledge assessment or as a quick exit ticket activity.
Note: Quiz Socket doesn't have the advanced options provided by Socrative and/or Infuse Learning.
