Welcome to the first tutorial!
Creating your first event can be somewhat daunting, but you'll soon see there's nothing to worry about. Let's dive in.
An event consists of three tabs: the votes, the messages, and the participant pace.
The votes are interactions with which you can gauge your audience's interest and knowledge in real-time. Insert these questions into presentations to maintain high attention rates and improve student learning during class.
Got it? Of course you have. Let's move along.
Students can send their teacher messages in real-time. The message board allows them to send their questions, ideas, arguments, and remarks without ever having to speak up or raise their hand. In large classrooms and auditoria in particular, this gives everyone a voice.
In addition, by liking each other's messages, students can prioritise the most important questions and show you where their interests lie.
Still with us? I never doubted you for a second.
- Participant pace
Use the participant pace to share files and questionnaires with your students, which they will consult and fill in at their own pace, respectively. These surveys are a great way to ask students to prepare for an upcoming class or to review how well they can handle the material seen in a previous one.
As long as a questionnaire is online, students will be able to access it, answer it, and review how well they did once they've completed it.
The participant pace is also an efficient way to gather feedback and find out your learners' interests. Use it to get to know your students in anticipation of a class or a course and structure it accordingly.
Here's the student view of such a questionnaire:
But wait, there's more!
Settings and useful features
Will participants answer anonymously or will they be identified? Will there be a competition or not? What should I wear on the first day of class?
Once you have created the event's content using the three aforementioned tabs, you can answer these questions (and more, except for that last one) using the event settings. Access them in the top right corner of your interface.
Among the settings you can see on the right side of your interface, you'll find:
Click on "More settings" to:
- share events with colleagues;
- send customised student reports;
- access various colour themes;
- and turn off web or text message participation.
