Sendsteps

Principal function(s): Question/answer management Quiz maker

Sendsteps is a voting tool that can be used during lectures to interact with your students. After downloading the software, the teacher adds questions to a Powerpoint slide. During the actual presentation, the audience is invited to respond using their mobile phones or laptops. They can ‘vote’ on multiple choice questions or type in answers to open questions. Responses are received (anonymously or not) via SMS or internet, and are published in real time on the presenter's screen. Results can be downloaded after the presentation. Free for an audience up to 20 people.

Evaluation: Sendsteps is accessed via the PowerPoint toolbar, where users can select the option to add a vote or message slide. The questions and answers are created in PowerPoint and inserted as slides into the PowerPoint deck. The audience can respond to a question by either texting a number, tweeting with a specified hashtag, or by submitting an answer on the Sendsteps website using a code. Responses are recorded via the online Sendsteps platform, and automatically fed back to the presenter, who, depending on the type of question slide, can select which responses to publish, or reveal the results as a poll. Users must be connected to the internet to work with Sendsteps, and it is recommended that presenters have a second monitor set up to manage responses.

Cost: Free without registration + Paid premium plan
