How-to videos: 5-minute (max) screencasts to guide you through key processes

  • Uploading a new student set: Follow this procedure and it will take no more than 90 seconds to upload your class.
  • The Whiteboard: A great tool for showing the class an analysis of their results in realtime.
  • Results filters: Now your students have finished a set of quizzes, how can you see exactly the marking data you need?
  • Progress Charts: See, and share, how each student, or the whole class, are progressing through interactive graphs.
  • Question Creatr: A short tour of our new question-creation tool. Includes images, sounds and tagging, but not Glyphs. They were added after this video was made.
  • The Quiz Statistics page: To the a serious quiz author, this is the single most useful page in Yacapaca. Yet, hardly anyone knows about it.
  • Tagging across multiple pages: Advanced techniques for compiling quizzes from very large (100+) question banks.
  • Adding videos to quizzes: Create complete learning resources by embedding videos, slideshows and more into any type of assessment.
  • Fuzzy-match cloze questions: Write Cloze (aka "Type your answer") questions that are tolerant of students' poor spelling.
  • Teams increase student motivation: One click to to harness the power of teams in your classroom.
  • Quick Assignments: An end to the chaos of emailed assignment with this organisational feature.
  • Tagging Quizzes: You can get very sophisticated analytics on quizzes that have appropriately-tagged questions. You can now add those tags at any time after creating the quiz, rather than having to have planned them at the time of authoring the individual questions.
  • Advanced Assignment Setting: About half the "how do I..." questions we get relate to the assigning process. This short screencast answers most of those questions.
  • Managing Student Sets: How many teachers can teach many students via many sets, all with just one login each. Note this was filmed before the most recent design update.
