    Lessons of Phyz advantages:

    • A heavy font ensures high legibility even in dim lighting.
    • Questions are designed to be answered while the video plays—quick, simple responses keep students engaged without requiring deep reflection that would take them out of the presentation.
    • Question types are mixed: fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, and short answer are common; in some cases, matching or simple illustrations are involved.
    • I am a classroom teacher; I designed these resources for use with my own students.
    • If you find competing products online, by all means check them out. They may be cheaper; they may be free. None of them will be as professional, polished, or classroom-ready as this one.
