In Quizmaker 360, the player refers to the interface around the perimeter of your quiz slides. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to customize the quiz player.
You can choose which features appear on the player, modify the colors and font, change the text labels, adjust the size, and control how the quiz behaves when learners launch it more than once. You can even make the player invisible.
Watch this video introduction, then follow the activities below to practice.
Go to the Home tab on the Quizmaker ribbon and click Player.
Notice the three main sections of the player properties window:
Player categories appear on the ribbon across the top of the window.
The selection pane on the left side of the window is where you make modifications.
The interactive preview pane on the right side of the window updates automatically as you makes changes.
Practice Activity: Choose Your Player Features
The player properties window always opens directly to the Features category where you can choose which features to include on your player, such as title, question list, volume controller, and seekbar. It’s also where you choose the answer submission method for question slides.
Let’s hide a couple player features and set the answer submission method.
Uncheck the Quiz title box. Notice that the interactive preview updates with your change.
Select Submit one question at a time for the answer submission method.
Note: Currently, the color and font options only apply to the standard player, not the responsive player. See this interactive demo to know which player properties are supported in the responsive player.
Practice Activity: Customize the Text Labels
In this activity, we’ll make a change to one of the player text labels.
Click Text Labels on the player properties ribbon.
Scroll down to the label called Question drop-down list for Quizmaker quizzes.
Click the custom text field for this label and change it to QUESTIONS.
Click Update Preview below the text labels list and watch the Question List tab change in the preview pane.
