Xorro has released free access for school educators to its gamification and real-time assessment solution, Xorro-Q.
Xorro-Q's dashboard enables educators in BYOD classrooms and lecture theaters, to ensure the active participation of every single student in instant challenges. Challenges can be prepared ahead of time, or better, created in-class around existing resources and activities such as slide shows, videos etc.
Getting started is simple: students access Q using any browser (no plug ins, no downloads, no apps). There is an optional "Q-Launcher" desktop application for the teacher to download (Windows and Mac both avalable), however all Q functionality can be accessed by the teacher through a browser as well. All responses are saved in your account for later access.
You'll be using Q to brainstorm, create live wordclouds, check class conceptual understanding, run class contests and instant quizzes in no time!
To get started, enrol for a free account. You'll get a username and password to use Xorro-Q as a Free Facilitator. Login to your Facilitator Home Page; download the Q-Launcher desktop software, or just get started ("Activities tab") in creating some questions and activities.
