Configuring the Memory Game Template
Once you’ve selected the template, there are 3 things that you will need to configure;

Title and Description
You can easily input your own title once you click the TITLE. You can use this space for giving straightforward instructions or come up with a simple name for your activity to make it more fun. On the other hand, the DESCRIPTION can be used to give a more detailed background or instruction for your activity.
Inserting content for your Tiles
The tiles are the “flipped cards” that the learner will be clicking when playing the Memory game. These tiles are divided into 2 columns, the left, and the right. In order to make a pair, you should fill in one left tile and one right tile with contents.
If you ever need to insert more pairs to match, you can click the +Add a section button and start inserting content for the left and right text bars.
Setting up the timer
The timer can help learners maintain focus and create a sense of urgency and accomplishment in finishing a game or an activity before the time runs out. You can set up the timer by typing in how long you want it to run in seconds. This feature is optional, and you can disable it anytime you want by ticking the Disable box.
