Creating a quiz using the Quiz exhibit kit
How it works
- Download. Download the exhibit kit editor to your office computer.
- Create. Use the editor to create your exhibit. The editor is as easy to use as a wordprocessor - type text in the text boxes, load pictures into the picture boxes. There's no programming involved.
- Publish. Choose the "Publish" option to make a single file which contains your exhibit. Put this on a flash drive and transfer it to the gallery. Job done.
Find Out More lets you use text, pictures and video to give visitors more background information about your exhibition.The Quiz lets you create fun quizzes to really engage people in your content.

What does it cost?
You can download the free versions of the exhibit kit software and use them to create exhibits for no payment. The free versions limit the number of pages or questions you can have.
You'll also need a touchscreen and a computer. We've had good results with an ELO 1939L touchscreen which is around £450 (Suppliers here). For the computer we've used an HP 6000 Pro which is around £390 ( Suppliers here). But you should be able to use pretty much any new Windows PC and many other touchscreens. The exhibit kits will even work with a mouse or trackball.

Exhibit kits have been tested to run on Windows XP and Windows Vista. If you need a Macintosh version please let us know and why it's important at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exhibit kits can be used with a touchscreen, trackball or mouse.
They can use almost any screen size but for best performance we'd recommend a 17" with a resolution of 1280 x 1024.
You can change all the text which visitors see which means you can create your exhibit in any language which uses the latin character set.
Each exhibit kit comes with a reference manual which you can also read on the web but the best way of seeing how they work is to download one and try it!
