Toolbox Tip: How to Take Your Quizzes From Blah to Beautiful

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

I understand that a lot of people build e-learning quizzes using the default form view in Articulate Quizmaker. While working in form view is a super quick and easy way to create quizzes, sometimes you may want to go beyond the default options to better match the design of your course.

That’s when you can take advantage of Quizmaker’s slide view for a much more flexible approach to designing quizzes. Working in slide view’s free-form environment gives you the freedom to design quizzes that perfectly match the rest of your course.

Getting started

In slide view, your design options are virtually limitless. You can position objects anywhere on the screen, add custom multimedia elements, and even apply animations to take full control of your quiz’s visual design. Working in slide view is an easy way to create great-looking professional designs that match the look and feel of the rest of your course.
