Mentimeter is a web-based, real-time polling tool that can be used to gauge the opinions or knowledge of your audience. It provides a wide selection of question types and enables users to respond to them via their tablet or other mobile device. The feedback can then be viewed in real-time and discussed with the participants.
The tool is used primarily used by lecturers at St George’s, University of London for in-class polling to gauge the knowledge and opinions of students. However, it can also be used in other scenarios, such as capturing the decision-making of a committee, capturing research findings with study subjects, or gathering feedback from professional peers during a conference presentation to inform directions for future research.
St George’s has a licence that enables you to make use of Mentimeter. Contact Learning Technology Services for information.
