Course (Re)Design Learning Tools: Mentimeter

 

The Biggio Center recently wrapped up our 2017 Summer Course (Re)Design Seminar. The 82-person cohort was filled with faculty from across the University, with a large percentage hailing from the College of Liberal Arts. On the first day of the seminar we used an instructional technology called Mentimeter, an easy-to-use tool that helps facilitators and presenters gather feedback from their participants with no installations or downloads required.

Faculty were asked what three words describe their feeling about beginning Course (Re)Design. Their resulting word cloud is shown below:

Faculty's first day Mentimeter, the most popular word was: Excited.

 

One of our College of Liberal Arts colleagues, Dr. Thomas Lockhart, a long-time user of Reef Polling (now called iClicker Cloud), shared his first impressions and a comparison of Mentimeter with other polling software on the College of Liberal Arts blog. You can read Dr. Lockhart’s thoughts and comparison on the College of Liberal Arts blog.

On the last day of Summer Course (Re)Design, faculty were again asked to use Mentimeter to share three words that describe their feeling about completing Course (Re)Design. Their resulting word cloud is shown below:

 

Faculty's final day Mentimeter, the most popular word was: Inspired.
