Goran Ocepek (2011) HTML5 and CSS3 usage in web based quizzes. EngD thesis.
The contents of this diploma work is creation of a web quiz using HML5 and CSS3 standards and discover the competitiveness among other technologies currently available on the market. First part of the assignment is searching for already existing tools for making web quizzes, their short review and their suitability today’s time. After this comes a short review of new features of standards and its uses in web quizzes. At the end comes creation of the quiz itself. While looking for existing tools two of them stand out. The first one (Hot Potatoes) had its support cancelled quite a while ago. It uses plain HTML for presentation which means its looks aren’t very attractive. The second one (QuizCreator) is much more useful. It uses Flash technology and the company that develops it offers full support for the product. While reviewing new features I was mostly looking from the point of what would make my quiz more attractive, original for the user. Because of this I focused on the possibility of using multimedia and 3D animations. All of these features are made possible by the HTML5 and CSS3 standards but the problem arises with browsers. I also did a small comparison between different browser and their support of the new standards in this section. In the final part I described the development of my quiz. I started by creating the individual questions. While doing this I was tending to use as many new features as possible. In some questions I also inserted multimedia like audio and video. When I was done with the questions I pasted each one on a side of a tridimensional cube. With each answer the cube rotates for 90 degrees exposing the next question. After answering the last question the cube again rotates and shows the results with elapsed time. With this feature I introduced 3D animation to my quiz which none of the before mentioned tools support.
