Share quizzes to phones with QR code

If you're using ESL Videos in class, ask students to scan the QR code to open the quiz on their device. The benefits are:

  • it saves paper, copies, and time,
  • you know how each individual student is doing when they send you their quiz score,
  • it's easy, and fun, and strengthens digital fluency.

  • How?

    For Androids, try this one: QR Code Reader and Scanner: App for Android by Kaspersky Lab.

Receive scores with a Class Code

On ESL Video, students do not need to create an account to view their class page or send you quiz scores. Instead we use a Class Code. See the video below.

To create a Class Code, login and click the user icon above the logo, then select My Classes from the drop down menu. You can create up to 5 class codes.

Tips for using ESL Video in the lab / blended learning

A useful new feature recently added to the site is the Class Code / Series button that you'll see on some quiz pages.

This button opens a side panel which lists all the videos in a series, or all the videos you've added to a class page, thus your students readily find the quizzes you want them to do.

Watch the video below to see how to add quizzes to a class page.
