Group feedback (Mentimeter)

Mentimeter is a cloud-based platform used for presentations and audience engagement.

Account holders can:

  • create an infinite number of presentations
  • share the content to live audiences
  • allow the audience to participate online in the activities presented.

As a Charles Sturt staff member, you can access a Mentimeter enterprise licence. This means you can use the full suite of presentation and engagement tools available.

Why use Mentimeter?

  • It's intuitive. The Mentimeter interface makes it easy to build and launch activities and share these with a live audience.
  • Online audience engagement is a critical attribute for many educators, particularly as more students study online. Mentimeter is a great way to quickly involve your live audience in your teaching, with activities including:
    • ice breakers
    • brainstorming
    • changing perspectives over time
    • game-based learning.
  • It can be launched live from within Zoom via the Mentimeter marketplace app (zoom marketplace). This means you can retrieve and launch Mentimeter activities from within any Zoom Meeting you attend.
  • It allows you to transition live online teaching away from purely didactic, to a more collaborative delivery medium.
  • Mentimeter activities remain live until you stop them. You can use a html embed code to situate your live activity within other online platforms (e.g. inside your Interact 2 subject sites). This means your activity can become asynchronous. Users can click on a voting portal link to provide their own responses and see the impact of these choices via embedded results.
