Managing the quiz in PowerPoint


When the teacher (or the participants) run the PowerPoint slideshow and end up on a slide with a Liveslides placeholder, the teacher will be prompted to enter a password. This is the same password he entered when creating the protected link. Participants will also see the password prompt when they have the slides upfront, but will not know the correct password. 


To use the quiz in PowerPoint, proceed as follows:

  1. Open your PowerPoint presentation.
  2. Hit F5.
    Result: The presentation mode started. 
  3. On the Live slide, enter your password. 

    Note: On the slide with the embedded quiz, the participants already see a short URL to the quiz, both before the teacher has entered his password and while the quiz is in progress, finished and in status share results and practice mode. This allows participants to access the quiz directly, even if they were not signed in to collaborationQ yet. 

  4. Click Login
    Result: The quiz is now shown in the PowerPoint presentation.
  5. Once you have entered the correct password, you can change the status of the quiz:
    • Start it and see live results (on the overview page of the quiz and on the individual quiz pages).
    • Stop the quiz.
    • Share results.
    • Enter practice mode.
