A quick post about a free resource that will be of interest to anyone who likes to use quizzes as lesson starters or as a plenary.

Stu’s Double Jeopardy is a free piece of software that will run on any computer and can be used with any IWB or even just with a projector. It allows you to build your own versions of the Jeopardy game show based on your own subject to use with your class. The game allows you to customise all the questions, and to have up to 6 teams playing at the same time.

You can use the built-in question editor, or even produce the questions in an Excel template and paste them into the question editor.

A really nice touch with the latest version is that you can even install the software onto a USB stick so you can play it on any computer just by plugging your USB stick into that machine. This is great for those of you teach in many different rooms – you dont have to install it on many different computers (or who have computers that are locked down by the IT technician)

Stu’s Double Jeopardy looks like a really useful resource and again, like all my favourite resources it’s free (but Stu does accept donations if you like it!)

You can get the latest version, and find out more about the software, here.
