Shared Libraries make it even easier for you to share, edit and collaborate on quizzes with your colleagues to make the best content for your students. Whether you are working alongside a co-teacher, collaborating with a group of colleagues teaching the same subject, or mentoring new educators in your learning community, Shared Libraries let you team up to access, co-create, and share the material you need to engage your learners more deeply - all within Socrative.

Additional Functionality

October 03, 2022 - Updated Equation Editor + Chemical Equations

This update brings more functionality to the equation editor and support to Chemical Equations. We want to make the experience of questioning students more seamless. Even though we knew it was possible to display chemical formulae and equations using the equation editor in mathematics mode, it was a rather cumbersome experience.

Teachers in the Sciences realm can now enjoy chemical formulae and equations using the Equation Editor to display element symbols, superscript and subscript notation, ions and isotopes, bonds, equilibrium reaction arrows etc. - allowing a more flexible display and more natural input of chemical formulae and equations.
