Christmas Quiz 2011
« on: December 01, 2011, 08:32:01 AM »
Morning everyone

As a thank you for another year of support, advice and generally keeping me in the loop about everything in the world of Geog, I have had a stab at another quiz - same format as before.  I am trying to find a way to upload to 4 share - it is too big at the moment to email Katharine (my technical saviour!!) but I am sure it will be up in the next couple of days.

I have used a disney round from a few years ago with the theory being the kids won't remember or have left!!

If anyone would like to add rounds/ammend or update that would be fab.  I am not precious and lacked imagination this year to create new rounds!!

Happy Christmas everyone  :-* :-*

You could open a Dropbox account and then share the folder the quiz is in
Looking forward to it

Can someone try this please???

Quiz PPT - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/51771776/Xmas%20quiz%202011.pptx

Music Round - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/51771776/music%202011.wav

Disney Round - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/51771776/disney.mp3

You will need to save them all in the same folder and then hyperlink the music files into the right slides.

If this works I will be amazed!!  *fingers crossed*

For those who don't know my broadband would be faster by pigeon so makes sharing a nightmare!!

Will keep at it if this fails :-)

Hi Helen
Have just tried - the power point and Disney round have worked perfectly.
However, I just got an error message when i tried to download the music round.
It does look fantastic though!!

Hi Helen,
              This looks great as always. I have had the same problem, in that the music round just comes up with an error message. Also, I haven't actually been able to download the disney round but could listen to it through the internet link. How about uploading everything in a zip file to the SLN 4shared link which is a sticky at the top of the discussion page?
Thanks again.
