Educandy

Educandy is a website and an app that can help you rapidly create short, interactive learning activities. Users enter vocabulary lists or questions and answers and the website converts this information into fun interactive games such as multiple choice, crossword puzzles, hangman, and other memory games, which can be played with the whole class, or individually. When the teacher creates an activity a unique code is generated which can then be shared with students so that they can play the games on their own devices. Activities can also be embedded into websites.

Evaluation: Educandy is a useful tool for creating attractive, fun, interactive games for students to practise vocabulary. It is easy to use and does not require much time.

Cost: Free with registration
