OneExtraLap - Social Quizzing
OneExtraLap is a site dedicated to the idea of creating a quiz, making it social, and then turning that quiz into a competition. It allows you to create and take compelling and content rich quizzes while competing with friends and earning points and badges. Sign up is easy. Username, Password, and Email address.
Each quiz is limited to 9 questions, but each question can have up to 9 answers, so you could also turn your quiz into a survey. You can also tag your quizzes making it easy for students to find them online and take them. I think a site like this could really take off if they created a way to create teacher accounts. It would be a great way to create competition online for your students and provide another way for your to assess your students. It is still in its infancy, but I think the site shows some promise of being useful and neat.
