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.

Most successful authors start by simply playing around in the Sandpit


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.
