Interactive reveal quiz template

Interactive reveal quiz template

This is an interactive PowerPoint template that allows people to create reveal quizzes with scoring - it uses macros and so sadly will only work on PCs and they need to be enabled when the PowerPoint is run. A sample quiz of famous landmarks is included to demonstrate how it works. When using the template add pictures to the PowerPoint slides and then cover these pictures with autoshapes (rectangles, ovals, stars etc) and for each covering shape type on a points value - the more important what the shape covers the higher the number of points. Instructions are given on slide 3 too. This is the first version of this template so please send me constructive feedback, including ways it can be enhanced.
