A Pack is a versatile tool for organizing and sharing content within Plickers. We recommend using Packs to bring together related resources that cover specific sub-topics within a curriculum, thereby making content easier to manage. You can find more info here.
Creating a Pack is very simple and straightforward, and it's done at plickers.com on your computer. This article takes you through the steps required to do so.
- Sign in to Plickers on your laptop/computer at plickers.com
- Select New Pack from the bottom of the left-hand sidebar
- Enter the necessary information about your new Pack and click the blue Create Pack button
- Select the New Set button to create questions within the Pack
