Mentimeter, a tool to create interactive presentations and assess students

Poll and survey creatorsQuiz/exercise makers

Description: Mentimeter is an interactive presentation tool that helps users engage their audience through live polls, quizzes, word clouds, and other interactive features. Users create presentations on the Mentimeter platform and incorporate interactive elements such as multiple-choice questions, open-ended questions, quizzes, surveys, and brainstorming activities. Respondents can then access presentations through a code and answer anonymously. Presenters can project Mentimeter and visualise the results in real-time. Mentimeter offers a limited free version and does not require users to sign up for an account to participate in a Mentimeter. However, presenters have to sign up to create and manage presentations and gather audience responses. Mentimeter was developed by a team of software developers and designers based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Evaluation: Mentimeter is a valuable tool for classroom use since it allows teachers to assess their students and gather feedback from the audience in real-time. It can serve the purpose of enhancing participation, assessing knowledge, and facilitating discussions. The fact that responses can be submitted anonymously allows teachers to, for instance, ask who has done their homework or understood the class content, while students can answer without fear of being exposed. Furthermore, the word wall option can also be useful to encourage shy students to share their opinions in brainstorming sessions, since questions can be answered at the same time publicly and anonymously. Asking for 3-word feedback from participants and displaying it instantly as a working cloud works well. Finally, Mentimeter could be an interesting tool to check students’ knowledge before a test, so that the teacher can identify where more input is needed and which content has been well understood. On the other hand, responder anonymity might encourage students to pull pranks. Average IT skills required.

Cost: Free limited version.
