We have tried
to make an educative quiz to make people interested in this kind
of an educative game and to make some competitive relationships.
Our quiz is called "ETFKviz" because it is running on
the computer at Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Osijek. The
quiz is script written for IRC (Internet Relayed Chat Protocol).
ETFKviz quiz is a competitive kind of game. The script program
asks questions which are stored in the text file. All players
receive a question in approximately same time and it is the same
question for everyone. A player that first types the correct answer
to the question receives one point. In case when nobody knows
correct answer, the program will offer some sort of help (hint)
by showing the first few letters of the correct answer. If nobody
types the correct answer after the third hint, the program will
inform all players to prepare for the next question.
Questions are saved in the text file, so the administrator can
easily add new questions or change errors in old questions and
they come from different areas. In this case it is convenient
to present questions related to computer science (software, hardware,
can be used for educative purposes. This is easily made by arranging
questions from different areas of education. For example, we can
arrange questions from geography - the script program can show
the name of the country and players have to guess capital.
