Prepd’s News Feed automatically retrieves 150,000+ articles from over 50 different news sources. Since articles in the News Feed can then be saved to any Prepd application, the News Feed helps teams quickly file and fills research gaps. It also helps level the playing field, so smaller extemp clubs can compete against larger programs. Learn more about the News Feed by reading this blog post.
When you save evidence to the Library, you have the option to add the file to Extemp as well. Click on the Extemp icon in the Fast Catch Chrome extension or the PDF uploader to save the file to Extemp folders and sub-folders. Extemp keeps all your evidence organized.
Extemp makes it easy to manage your filing system. Create categories to group folders according to a common theme (e.g., US Economy, Presidential Race, Asia, etc.). Easily create, edit, merge, and delete folders and sub-folders to keep your filing system clean and easy to use.
Advanced search and filtering tools quickly surface the most relevant articles. Smart Search allows you to specify keywords and narrow search parameters. Smart Filters sort articles by recency, file type, and contributor. Extemp does the time consuming work of finding articles, so you can focus on your speech.
Create a Round
While competing, create a Round to keep yourself focused and organized. When you find an article you want to cite, simply select the “+” button next to the article to add it to your round. In one view, you will see your topic question, a timer, and all the articles and sources you need to prep your speech.
