The Interactive Choice mode allows participants to play on their own and the moderator of the game can track their progress. This is a great option for asynchronous learning styles where students learn or review their materials at their own time and pace. The Interactive Choice mode is also helpful for remote-learning set-ups where students are doing self-paced activities and training.
Note: Interactive Choice does not require a moderator. Individual players can play in a timed or continuous play scenario.
