How I Use It
I use Jeopardy Labs to re-enforce learning on specific topic areas and test prior learning, but it could easily be used to tailor review, practice, and support learning for varying needs. Everything I've test on Jeopardy Labs has worked without difficulty or a hitch. Downloading templates (which are really actual jeopardy games created by other users) seems a bit awkward as you have to check the location of downloads to find it. But that's not a big obstacle for most computer users.
My Take
If you like using Jeopardy as re-enforcement, practice, homework or other in your classroom, you will like Jeopardy Labs. One of the aspects I like about Jeopardy Labs is the games are available on Google. Furthermore, its creator, Matt Johnson, developed this web-based game maker during his time at Washington State. And since Jeopardy Labs is web-based students can access from anywhere At Jeopardy Labs, student's can create a jeopardy game as part of a group or individual project or an assessment submission. Teacher's can create jeopardy games as part of curriculum, or you can find games already created by other users (vett them of course first before using them).
