Apple Music has released its inaugural list of the 100 best albums of all time. Lauryn Hill's "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill"came in at No. 1, sparking some debate by music fans who thought Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was a more worthy winner. Here's a story from the Independent about the list. We want to know, which of these DIDN'T make the top 10?

Depuis quelques mois, je ne parviens plus à importer des quiz sur #ClassQuiz (, un site qui se veut une alternative #opensource à #Kahoot. J'ai du mal à me résoudre à utiliser ce dernier, pour son côté fermé et par trop commercial.
Il y a un mois, l'auteur de l'application me disait qu'il allait jeter un coup d’œil sur le problème. Je n'ai pas d'écho depuis.

Connaissez-vous d'autres alternatives ouvertes qui me permettraient de faire la même chose ?

@classeadeux Merci beaucoup !
C'est typiquement ce type d'outil que je souhaite avoir. L'avantage de , c'est qu'on peut élaborer son sous la forme d'un fichier Excel et ensuite, l'importer directement dans le système (quand ça fonctionne).
Sur , il faut écrire les questions une à une, ainsi que la réponse juste et les réponses erronées. C'est plus fastidieux.
(Je génère quasi automatiquement mes quiz, via une IA générative, directement sous la forme d'un tableau Excel).

For those of you that like to take online quizzes and assessments, here's a mental health one...

Mine didn't tell me anything I didn't already know regarding depression and anxiety. Those have been with me off and on my whole life, and I came by them honest, as the saying goes. As for ADHD, well, one of my kids was actually diagnosed, so I did suspect it.
