Engaging students with Mentimeter

Mentimeter allows you to build interactive presentations, by adding questions, polls, quizzes, slides, images, gifs and more to your presentation to make them more engaging and fun.

When you present, your students or an audience uses their smartphones to connect to the presentation where they can answer questions, give feedback and much more. Their responses are visualised in real-time, creating a unique and interactive experience. Once your Mentimeter presentation is over, you can share and export your results for further analysis and even compare data over time to measure the progress of your audience and sessions.

What is an Audience Response System?

An Audience Response System (also known as a Student Voting System) allows presenters (either staff or students) to 'ask the audience' and get participants to vote or answer questions whilst attending a lecture or presentation.
