A great way to learn about our games & surveys is to play them! There are two ways to play through our games from within the instructor console: Demo and Preview.
What's the difference? When you demo a game or survey, you play with the default parameters. When you preview a game or survey, you have the option of changing the game parameters or survey questions and previewing how those changes affected the student user interface. When you preview, you first have to add the game or survey to your playlist. View our article on how to Demo a Game.
How to Preview Games & Surveys
To Preview games and surveys, they first need to be added to one of your playlists. Make the desired changes to the game or survey configuration and press the Preview button located right below the Open Activity button. Note that after a game has been run, you need to create a fresh copy of the game to make the Preview button available again.
Like a demo, this will launch a game with some robotic players and allow you to interact with the game as if you're a student. However, any parameter or configuration changes you make will be part of the game. When you're done playing, click the End Game button at the top of the screen.
Click the X in the top-right corner to return to the instructor console.
