iQuiz: learning games on an iPod

iQuiz logo

A post at Tony Vincent’s excellent Learning in Hand blog has informed me of a new ‘game’ for Apple iPods entitled iQuiz. This $0.99 (£0.75) game allows you to view and play quizzes on a 5th generation iPod (known as ‘iPod Video’). Fortunately I have one of these and was able to test it. My verdict? It rocks: really professionally made, very intuitive and could be great to use with students!

There’s immense possibilities for this. I’ve recently added a whole host of iPod-formatted video and audio files to a password-protected page on my website for students. As I will be able to create games for free at iQuizMaker.com (currently Mac-only, but with a Windows version forthcoming) this opens up even more opportunities…

    I just created http://www.iquizlibrary.com for those that are making iQuizzes to come together and submit them all to one place. I can’t wait to see how everyone uses this new technology from Apple! It will be an exciting thing indeed.
