AgoraQuiz

Principal function(s): Quiz/exercise makers

AgoraQuiz is an online educational tool for creating collaborative quizzes. Educators can create groups for their students, assign a password to limit access, and add themes to practise, i.e. arts, science, or maths. Students can then start proposing questions for each topic, which can later be reviewed by group admins and included as quiz questions. Educators can also access quizzes created by other educators on AgoraQuiz and use them. Finally, students can compete against one another to see who gets more questions right. AgoraQuiy is free but requires creating an account for use. It was created by Gabriel Franck. Evaluation: AgoraQuiz is an engaging and fun tool for classroom use. Educators can add some variety to their pedagogical methodology by adding a gamified way of learning, while students can learn both when proposing quiz questions and when playing against each other. The fact that learners can also propose quiz questions adds a level of agency and can make them more engaged with the learning process. In addition, AgoraQuiz allows teachers to monitor both the class and each of the pupils in order to identify individual or group difficulties. Interestingly, AgoraQuiz can be a time-saving tool since educators can access quizzes created by other fellow educators and use them. As a downside, AgoraQuiz’s interface is only available in French.
