Setting up a Self-Paced Quiz on AhaSlides

Setting up a Self-Paced presentation on AhaSlides

Find out how your audience can play a quiz/complete a survey in their own time.

Choosing the self-paced setting lets your audience proceed through a presentation without a host.
This is great for:
- Teachers who want to assign a quiz as homework.
- Quiz masters who want to give their players freedom to complete a quiz at a time that suits them.
- Trainers who want to carry out a survey that participants can complete at their own pace.

How to turn on Self-paced mode

  1. On the presentation editor, head to the Settings menu
  2. Click on Who takes the lead
  3. Choose Audience (self-paced)

Protip 💡 Remember to set your presentation to public mode first before sending your quiz out to participants. You can always set it back to private mode whenever you want by pressing the eye icon beside your presentation title.

On the audience’s screen

Once you turn on the Self-paced feature, your audience will be able to navigate through the slides at their own pace, without the need for a presenter. The Back and Next navigation bars can be used to move to the previous or next slide. This feature makes it easy for your audience to follow along with your presentation and complete it on their own time.
