You can also operate Slam-In using an optional wireless host remote control that lets you moderate a match without having to sit next to your computer:
• One button starts questions and timers. • Two others are labeled "Right" and "Wrong". • Another can lock out all ring-in activity. • Yet another allows you to call a Time Out.
You can even Swap to PowerPoint to teach during a match, then swap back to Slam-In to review what you've presented! It's optional, but it's great if you're moderating alone in front of an audience.
Regardless of what you call it - a quiz bowl, an academic tournament, a scholastic bowl, a knowledge bowl, a geography bowl, a science bowl, an academic challenge, a brain brawl, a battle of the books, etc. - Slam-In turns your event into a show that no one will forget! (It will also be an event that, for once, is easy for you to set up and run.)
