Use the Teach Up smart highlighter

You can add five interactive games: scratch, fill-in-the-blanks, drag and drop, choices in a list and find an error.

1. Identify the most important words you want participants to remember (key words)

To identify key words, use Teach Up’s smart highlighter.

Teach Up's smart highlighter is a key word selection tool. To use it, click on "Select keywords".

Next, click on the word or group of words (up to three words at a time) that you want participants to remember. The interactive games will be applied to these words.

2. Select the interactive games for your key words

In the tool bar, click on the “puzzle” icon . All types of games are selected by default. Disable any games you don’t want to use.

To make the most of Teach Up’s technology and vary the learning exercises for participants, we suggest keeping as many games selected as possible.

3. Add incorrect answers

To ensure the “Choices in a list” and “Find an error” games work properly and can be offered to participants, you'll need to add incorrect answers (diversions).

To do this, click on your key word (highlighted in yellow), then click “wrong answers”.

Add your incorrect answer and click “OK” to save it.

Click on "A wrong answer" to add all of your incorrect answers one after the other.

We suggest adding between three and five incorrect answers per key word.
Teach Up can also automatically generate wrong answers based on participants’ incorrect answers in the fill-in-the-blank activity.

4. Modify or deactivate a keyword (optional)

You can modify or deactivate your keywords at any time during the module design phase by clicking on "Edit keyword" or "Disable keyword".

If you want to highlight keywords without integrating interactive games, you can disable the games and simply use the Teach Up smart highlighter. The keywords will be highlighted in yellow in your text. To do this, deactivate the “Autogenerate interactive exercises” option.

Here is a participant’s view of content with highlighted keywords only (no integrated interactive games).
