Learning should be fun! That’s why Playvox incorporated PlayCards into course activities. A PlayCard is similar to a flashcard. By adding and configuring PlayCards, you are making a game where the learner associates the front of a card with what is on the back of the card. They are able to study the correct pairs in the beginning of the activity, and then have to find the correct match from two, three, or four different answers. Who doesn’t like a good game?
Let’s go through the quick and simple process of adding PlayCards to your course.

7. Configure the PlayCard. To configure a PlayCard activity, first decide whether
you’d like two, three, or four answer choices (only one answer is correct).

you would like them to be presented in a set order.
Remember: You can drag and drop cards to change the order before saving.

of each card under the Card List.
