Here's a quick run-through of the new feature: Favorite A Quiz.
If you're a teacher, and you want to put quizzes for your students on your (soon to be released) blackboard, this feature is going to help you get your quizzes there.
If you're a learner, favoriting a quiz is a way to keep all your favorite quizzes bookmarked in one spot. You might want to do this if you've got several quizzes you're studying for, or are frequently practicing. You can remove a quiz from your favorites just as easily.
Here's how it works...
Every quiz in the geography section has (or will soon have) a star just above the Question and Answer box. You just click on the star to mark the quiz as a favorite. It will turn from an outline to a solid star to show that it has been saved as a favorite.

If you want to remove the quiz from your favorites, just click the solid star, and it will revert back to the original outline (unfavorited) star.
When you want to see your favorites, go to your My Account menu (yes, you have to be signed in for your favorites to be saved and viewed) and select My Favorite Quizzes.

Below is a screenshot of what the My Favorite Quizzes screen looks like. As you can see, you can also remove quizzes from your favorites here.

Favoriting a quiz is available to Individual Supporters, those with a Teacher Plus account, and students of a Teacher Plus.
Stay tuned for a blog post on how this fits in with the new blackboard feature.
We've got a new quiz for you today - super expert level stuff. Europe rivers, seas, straits, etc. all rolled into one monster quiz with 63 questions.
But if that's too much for you, this quiz is also customizable (for those with supporter or teacher accounts). Create a quiz of just the water around the Mediterranean, if that's what you need. And speaking of the Mediterranean, you can select just the Mediterranean, or select any of its seas to be individually asked in the quiz.
We've just launched a new 30-question quiz on Asia bodies of water. Seeing as the South China Sea dispute has been in the news so much lately, it is good to know where it is, if you don't already know. That will get you one point - can you get the other 29?Feb 012016
We recently created two new flag/map quizzes to help test your combined flag and country location knowledge. They were initially available to our supporters first, but they are now available to everyone!
Flags of Asia map quiz
Flags of the Americas map quiz
Give them a try!
We've just launched two new quizzes to test your country flag knowledge. We'll show you a flag, you have to find the country on the map. The Africa and Europe versions have been around a long time: now we've got an Americas flag quiz as well as an Asia flag quiz.
As promised, our supporters get early access to new quizzes and features. For everyone else, the new quizzes will open up to you on February 1, 2016.
