Pick or Random

The Instructor picks a student from the list or randomly to answer the question.


A better way to select a student to answer question during webinar or in a classroom!

  1. Go to "Pick or Random" in Activity. Press the "Play" button on the right hand side.
  2. The system will generate the session number. Tell students to join session "A163" for example and then click "Continue"
  3. Select your quiz from the question bank, or create a question on the fly by pressing the "Create question" button at the top.
  4. Click the name of your quiz (e.g., Demo Activities), and then click the title of the first question that you want to ask. In this example, I want to start with the "Store signage" question, so I click that one.
  5. Students will now see the question on their smartphones or computers but they cannot answer the question at this moment. A message "Waiting for teacher action" is shown.
  6. You can now select a student to answer this question by pressing the name (link) below the chosen student's icon (e.g., 1:Mary). Alternatively, press the "Pick Manually" icon and then click your chosen student's icon.
  7. Mary can now answer this question. Other students are not chosen so they do not need to answer this question. Mary's answer is now being shown.
  8. You can press the "More" icon to show the question that was asked.
  9. Press the "End question" button to check Mary's answer.
  10. Press the "Show Correct Answer" button to show the correct answer.
  11. Sometimes, a student may give up and not answering the question. In this case, you should end the question and then press the "Pick again" button to select another student to answer this question again.
  12. If there's more than one question in the quiz, press the "Next" button to preview the question. You can pick your participant manually again, or have the system pick one randomly for you.
  13. For a large class or during webinar, it's fun to press that "Random Pick" button because there will be some animation showing on the screen!
  14. When the quiz is ended, the ranking page will be shown to show how many times a student is selected and also the number of correct answers being submitted.
