A Trivia quiz is always great. Questions, suspension, doubt, reaction speed, fun and a good humor. Who needs more to break the ice and to spend some time with friends or family?
Typically for Trivia, you get a question for a given point of interest, e.g. like sports here in this article, and then 4 possible answers. The deal is to give the correct answer within 10 seconds.
PowerPoint is great to build Trivia games in. First of all you can create a slide per question. Display the 4 possible answers and then finally highlight the correct answer with some animation after exactly 10 seconds.
DigiChief is a company that is providing data feeds for digital signage. Trivia questions is just a minor part of all the services and data feeds that they are offering. Earlier we already mentioned their Doppler Radar images. Their Trivia feeds can cover the following areas:
- General knowledge
Every day they refresh their questions and answers. And this service can be approached as an XML data feed.
XML data feeds can be read out in real-time by our DataPoint add-on for PowerPoint. Set up a connection to their XML URL and read out their questions and answers every time that you open the presentation. Why not include a sports Trivia question on your digital signage screens?
Don’t forget to activate our data scrolling option to show multiple questions on one slide only. Like this one here:
