Hosting an Online Revision Party

Fed up of the same old revision? Why not organise an online revision party? It’s simple to organise, a great way to connect with others and helps share the workload!

How does it work?

Each party guest chooses an area of the course they will become experts in. They then spend some time planning a brief recap of the topic. This could be a PowerPoint containing images and a small amount of text.

Next, each party guest writes a selection of multiple-choice questions to go with their presentation.

Finally, connect with each other online, take it in turn to teach, quiz and answer questions.

There are lots of free online tools you can use to host your party. If you have a Google account, you could try a Google Hangout. Another great tool is Zoom.us which allows up to 40 minutes of video meetings per session. Both services allow you to share your screen with others in your group, along with video and audio.

It is worth trying out a video meeting before you host your revision party so you are not wasting time setting up before the revision party.

Make sure you know the people you are having your online revision party with. Stay safe online!
