Factile

Principal function(s): Game app

Factile is an online platform that allows teachers to create games to play in order to check students' progress and preview or review learning materials. It offers a free version. Educators can either create their own jeopardy-style quiz or pick one from the thousands of pre-made game templates. When the game is played, the teacher clicks on right or wrong. Factile can be used for remote and/or in-person learning.

Evaluation: Factile is a user friendly tool that can be easily integrated into any subject or course curriculum. It can make for more engaging and fun classes, while still helping teachers assess students' understanding of old and new topics. Moreover, it's available in 5+ languages. The free version only allows you to create jeopardy-style games, with different options such as a buzzer mode, multiple choice, quiz bowl or memory game only in the paid-for version.
