Hosting a Quiz via Video Conference (Zoom)

We're living in unusual times and our usual spots for a quiz night - the pub or the village hall - are off limits.  There are alternatives though and a quiz with family friends run over Zoom, Webex or one of the other videoconferencing apps is a great way to get together during this period of social distancing.

If you are thinking of running one, here are a few things to consider:

  • Each family will need the relevant videoconferencing software, but they are easy to find (just google 'Zoom')

  • You will act as quizmaster, with teams writing down their answers

  • Music rounds can be played by sharing your MP3 player - ensure you have ticked the box to share computer sound first.

  • Picture rounds can be run by sharing your Powerpoint screen with the other particpants

  • Teams will need to mark their own answers and report in scores

Use the links below to find the content you need, and please let me know how they go.
