Mentimeter/AU VOTE

Mentimeter/AU VOTE is a so-called student response system (SRS) that, among other things, can be used to ask students questions during class or as a presentation tool like, for example, PowerPoint.

Getting direct response when teaching allows for more student involvement – both at lectures and small class teaching. With Mentimeter it is also possible to do, for example, questionnaires in between classes.

With their smartphone, tablet, or computer, students can answer questions, participate in polls, or write comments, depending on what you want to know. Answers are shared and presented instantly with well-arranged graphics. You can, among other things, prepare multiple-choice questions, word clouds, matrices, quizzes, and more.

Mentimeter can be embedded in Blackboard, and you can even customize the theme and template to streamline your design.

AU VOTE is an easily accessible and user-friendly system, which I recommend. Going forward, I will use the system to ensure high quality of and evaluate my presentations, and to check up on students' knowledge of the subject I am presenting – both before and after the presentation.
