Netquiz is a free multilingual, multi-platform web-based software for the creation of assessment activities (e.g., formative games, quizzes, tests, and exercises). The activities can be quickly published online and so made available to students. The platform supports a variety of question types: multiple choice, matching, classification, grid, essay, dictation, labelling, ordering, short answer, multiple answer, fill-in-the-blank, true or false, zone identification, etc.) It also allows one to create a glossary linked to the activities so that students can click on a highlighted word to access its definition, and definitions can take the form of text, image, video, audio, or links.
