What is Gimkit Join?
What do you think it could be? I bet this platform serves more than you think. Gimkit Join is an innovative approach in the academia world. Currently, it has been used by academic practitioners to engage their students in a way which keeps them motivated to learn. It undertakes assessments in the form of a game. Some real genius might have come up with this revolutionary idea.
Let’s dive in to learn the basics of the Gimkit Join.
How Gimkit Join Works?
- Teacher creates a “question bank” meaning, questions are collected from different sources (Google Forms, etc.). Now, it becomes a game.
- Now here comes the playful part, the link or code to the game is shared with the students to join the game.
- When students enter the game, it starts only when the game creator/teacher presses the start button. The very instant, questions start to appear on the screen with very less time for each one.
- Students rush to answer as soon as possible to be the first candidate to earn prizes and cash. Which can be spent later on to get some power-ups.
- These power-ups are the real deal here as it can change the game mode within seconds. We can also call these the catalyst, keeping the enthusiasm flowing.
- After the question bank is emptied or teacher calls it done, results are displayed instantly, reflecting the real-time progress.
How to Enter in Gimkit Join as a Student/Player
To enter any game, following is a very simple guide.
- Open the website Gimkit.com and tap on “Join Game”. A game dialog will appear for entering into the game of choice.
- On the game dialog, you’ll require a 6-digit joining code mandatory to enter any game. This code is shared by the creator of the game. This code can also be taken from the URL of the game (generally at the end of the URL).
- After, comes the username. Name is totally up to you but not to forget, it’ll be shown to everybody on board with you in the game.
- Click “Join” and you are good to rock! Your name will also be included in the scoreboard and you can keep it on the top by earning the maximum points.
- Other provided features/options in the game are absolutely in the creator’s hands. You can look up for them such as the question time, power-ups, etc.
- You can use these power-ups to level up your scores on the scoreboard. Now, here’s the twist. These power-ups can be used against other players and somebody can use them against you too. Be aware!
