Turn your Slides into an interactive branching presentation with Mazetec. 
* Add choices to your slides that your audience navigates from their phone. 
* Add a timer and points to show the cost and impact of decisions.
* Play it live with a group or send out solo. 

Originally built for training on how to respond to a mental health crisis, Mazetec captures the attention of busy multitasking students on the go and in the classroom and focuses them on your content.

Choices force people to stop and think about your content, add choices to your slides with Mazetec.

Play with a class or a group. Students join your presentation from their device. You see their choices live, who is on tab, and who hasn't responded. As you (the presenter) move forward all of the student screens are synchronized with your choice.

Create solo / asynchronous activities that students play on their own with a link.

Try the Open Choice feature to capture your class's questions on each slide.  Their questions create branches in the presentation that you can respond to and students can review asynchronous later with a link.  Learn more https://www.mazetec.org/hybrid-teaching/

Awesome, Just loved the application. I'm looking for something similar to this. I can convert my google slides to branching maze. I can set a timer and also assign a point to it and give it to my student. I can take a test of my student and I can track by which path my students completed a maze. I can see how much time they took to complete the test and how many points they get. I can also present my google slide to my student and along with that, they can play it. At the last, we get the leaderboard which is really nice to create a competitive environment. I would recommend this app to all.

Extremely useful app- you can use it for branching scenario presentations, but it's also super useful for preparing Q and A slides, test preparation slides, and self guided learning slide decks. No bugs either, totally hassle free and useful, would definitely recommend!

Really useful application to create scenario-based learning and quizzes from my slide. The feature which I like is I can create scenarios from my slide and I can present it. They are also providing analytics for all the play which is just awesome.

Use it for enrichment in my classes. Have used to create scavenger hunts as well as a couple social emotional learning activities. Lots of potential.

Perfect for branching my slides with choices and points so the slides we use in class can be reused as a game with points or a quiz. And in the analytics, you can see every time a student goes off-tab (i.e. when they are looking something up on a different tab), which is exactly what we've been looking for when turning our slides into quizzes.
