Pros

You can drag and drop images and video or you can use videos others have created.
Students can access the quiz easily through their computer or personal device with the room number provided by the teacher or librarian.
Game/competition that excites participants.
Provides real-time feedback to the teacher/librarian, so they know how each student answered and let's the class know who won the competition.
If a student types in a bad word for their name, it will automatically change it to something mundane like "toaster".
It's totally free!
You can set a time limit for each question.

Cons

It's easy for students to cheat, so you would only want to use this for informal, fun assessment or review...not for a grade.
