The Technology Enhanced Learning Team (TELT) continue to collaborate with academics and colleagues across QMUL to analyse the impact technology can have on the student experience. This month, TELT began a new pilot scheme with the school of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) to develop 3D models and virtual environments via the Mozilla Hubs platform.

Find out more about the pilot scheme.

Mentimeter news

TELT at the Mentimeter conference

The TELT attended the recent Mentimeter conference in Manchester and would like to pass on some of the upcoming developments mentioned in their roadmap.

As you might perhaps expect, AI was top of the tree in discussions throughout the day and featured prominently in their plans.
Two new AI tools mentioned are:

  • a response sorter to group audience responses into logical categories in your presentations
  • a prompt generator to help with drafting slides for presentations

These two tools are available on an opt in/out basis depending on data storage requirements, but hopefully we will have more news on these soon.

In addition to these, we can look forward to a post-session analytics tool to help presenters drill down into responses in word clouds etc, and a new desktop interface for those who wish to participate without using a hand-held device.
