How do I get started in Authoring?
Author privileges are not automatic. Generally, before you apply, please make sure that
- you have completed your account profile, including your portrait photograph.
- you have experience of using Yacapaca with existing materials.
- you have been confirmed by colleagues as being a member of a recognised educational institution.
Once authorised, most successful authors start by simply playing around in the Sandpit http://yacapaca.com/author/agroup_index.php?agroup=1064
You will be asked to introduce yourself to the Sandpit members. Every authoring group has its own membership, so it is important to make a good initial impression on the community. Once you have done this, you are free to use all the resources in the group!
- compile quizzes from the existing questions in the question bank.
- add your own questions and mix'n'match to create completely unique quizzes
Try out a few different techiques. Once you understand how the basics work, look for a an authoring group in your subject, and join that.
