So recently I have been using the Kinect and I have been making lots of resources and lots of applications for me to run within Visual Studio, however I thought that it would be beneficial if I could have a simple text file to edit rather than re-compiling the code all the time. I know that not every teacher has done computer science and the thought of programming just seems mind-numbing. I decided to make some of my applications more user friendly and after playing around with my Kinect Quiz I have managed to make it accessible to ALL TEACHERS all you need to do, is edit the simple text file by including your questions and you will have a finished lesson resource. You’ll find that all the students want to use the Kinect and you don’t even need an interactive whiteboard!!
The quiz allows you to answer 10 questions. You need to separate your questions, final answer and the possible answers using commas. If you read the instructions it is pretty easy to follow. I have also included a nifty reset button so that you can start over if you like. It doesn’t tell you if you have it wrong but you will know this yourself when the score doesn’t increase. You could have competitions with your students to see who gets the highest score!
You can download the source and the application from here. The finished version is called Kinect Quiz For Teachers and the source code is KinectQuiz4TeachersSource. Just so you don’t get the two muddled up from my sky drive.
Here’s the example of how it works again, however there is a new reset button and you can add 10 questions around your lesson.
