Sign up to a workshop “An introduction to Mentimeter” 10/10/23 12:00-13:00

What is Mentimeter?

Mentimeter is a web-based audience response system, as well as a presentational tool. At their most basic, these systems are the technology equivalent of asking the audience to raise their hands in response to a question. In this case, the audience use their smartphones, tablets or laptops to respond to questions. This means you can ask your audience to respond in a variety of different ways, and visualise their responses as bar charts, pie charts or word clouds. They are an effective way to promote engagement, especially with large audiences. While most usually thought about in the context of face-to-face teaching, Mentimeter is also a great way to inject some interactivity into your online sessions, no matter what webinar software you are using.

What can I expect from the Workshop?

This one hour online session will cover features of Mentimeter including:

• Filtering and moderating content
• Popular question types (Multiple Choice, Word Cloud, Open Ended, Scales, Ranking, Q&A)
• Content Slides (Heading, Paragraph, Bullets, Image, Document)
• Themes, Templates and Settings
• Collaboration
• Integration with Zoom and MS Teams

What should I be able to do after the session?

By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Know when to use Mentimeter
  • Create and edit their own presentations
  • Use the different question types
  • Use tips and tricks for creating a successful first presentation

How will the Workshop be delivered?

The session will take place online using Microsoft Teams.
