Welcome to Wooclap !! 😊
An event is an interactive session (a course, a training, a conference, etc.) and a question is a type of interaction proposed within Wooclap (Word Cloud, MCQ, Find on Picture...).
- In the Votes tab you can create live, synchronous votes. Once your participants have logged into your event and you launch a question on your projected screen, it also appears on your participants' screen for them to answer it. So everyone answers the same question at the same time.
See the article on how the audience participates.
- the Message Wall tab allows your participants to ask questions or send messages during your real-time Votes. This allows them to share their questions, arguments, ideas, and comments with you without having to raise their hands or voice. This allows everyone to be heard, especially in a large audience. In addition, participants have the opportunity to "like" the questions of their peers, which can highlight issues that the audience likes. If you have activated this Message Wall, you can view it at any time during your real-time Votes event.
- the Participant Pace's tab allows you to create an asynchronous questionnaire for your participants to complete whenever they wish. These questionnaires are ideal for asking your participants to prepare for a course/training session or to assess their level of proficiency once the session is over.
It is also an effective way of collecting their feedback and asking them what interests them. Get to know your participants even before they arrive in the classroom or before a training and use this information to structure your session.
As long as a questionnaire is published, participants will be able to access it, answer it, and review how well they did once they've completed it. This means every student fills in the survey whenever they have time to do so. They can fill it only once.
Once the questionnaire is completed, each learner can view the correct answers to assess their performance (unless you activate the "Do not display correct answers" setting).
To summarise, there are two ways of imagining your class or training with Wooclap:
-> Live via Votes
-> Asynchronously via the Participant Pace's questionnaires
Create your event and a question
Step 1: Create an event
- Click on "Create Event" and name your new event in the top left corner of the interface. Note that the default view of your event is the Votes tab.
- Customise the event code by clicking on the pencil in the top right corner. It is thanks to this code that participants can participate. Note that this code can only contain letters and numbers.
Step 2: Create your first question in the Votes tab.
- In the Votes tab, select the type of question you wish to ask the audience (e.g. here: a Multiple Choice Question).
- Fill in the required fields: the question or instruction, the different answers you propose and the correct answer(s) that you have to be tick.
- Click on "Save".
To create different types of questions (Fill in the Blanks, Brainstorming, Poll, etc.), repeat these steps by selecting the type you want within the question choice bar at the top of your dashboard. You can scroll to the right using the arrow to see all the question's types available.
Note that you can also add an image to your question by clicking on the grey corner to the left of your question.
Step 3: Invite the audience and launch the question
You will find your first question under question "0. How can you participate?".
Click on "Launch" next to it to invite the audience to log in to your presentation.
In the bottom right corner, the counter shows the number of connected participants.
Once everyone is there, use the arrow on the right to display the first question and allow your audience to answer in real time using their smartphone, tablet or computer.
Participants can reply to a vote as long as it is "launched" and therefore displayed on the projected screen. Once you decide to move on to the next question or slide, learners will no longer be able to answer the previous question. So everyone answers the same question at the same time.
Within your event, if you wish to create an asynchronous Participant Pace questionnaire, you can read this article.
