Edmodo, as an LMS being used worldwide, has been integral to those who got exposed to its utility, even once. Edmodo has an assessment and evaluation segment as well where the teacher can create and execute a quiz based assessment. Besides giving assignments and grading them, the Quiz feature gives us an opportunity to conduct a real-time, online assessment.
This blog post is a thanksgiving to Powtoon for their pleasant gesture of supporting the act of teaching. I wrote to them that their free account limitations are hampering the way we need to help the students stuck at home. Citing the Coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown, I asked for an increase in the time limit of videos we can make on their free account.
Helen Keller said that the most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but no vision. Our visions prompt us to see the beauty and uniqueness of things around. We also want to make things that move swiftly through the eyes of the viewers to their heart and make an appreciated mark on their intellects.
The animation is the key and the lock as well in this case. We lock our creativity and content in small Powtoon work and let it reach the learners. They use the same key and open it to unleash an abundance of interesting screening on the devices.
"Quizizz is a free tool. It works on any device: web browser, iOS, Android and Chrome apps. You can access hundreds of ready-made learning quizzes or create your own. Join as a teacher, pick a quiz, and use the code for a virtual room to give to your students."
The way you make a quiz, you host it and then you see them playing it on their mobile phones/tablets or laptops with the Scoreboard Seen Live on the Screen/Projector in the Class makes it a real happy classroom. The extra-edge comes with the Music that is being played by the App or the Website during the quiz.
The additional features about creating a quiz are more beneficial and good with the Quizizz. You can download an excel sheet from Quizizz and enter the questions as guided in this format. While using the desktop version, you can upload this .csv and the quiz is generated. Another excellent feature is to TELEPORT the questions from Pre-made quizzes. Click on teleport after cresting name of the quiz. On the right side of the screen you see that there are many quizzes opened and you can add a question to your quiz, just by clicking ADD.

Let me introduce you to ZOOM Meetings. This is a video conferencing platform with customisation that suits online classes. Teachers can do a lot even by using its free account which offers 40 minutes of the online session in one go.
Please remember that your reluctance is of no value to you. If you do not want to take your face, your voice can also be there as you can stop the video. Use the name of the next speaker when you close your virtual speech in video conference so that the other one can start. It will avoid the abrupt overlaps of speakers.
It is possible to use Zoom on Desktop with Webcam/Laptop or the smartphone you have. Install the Zoom Application for your desktop version or use the App for the phone. Using the Desktop version, you can schedule the meetings with ease and can also record the whole meeting being the Host. It is possible to share the screen or a particular window/screen with the students. You can join a meeting using the Application if someone else is hosting it.
