Online survey or audience response tools are powerful for capturing opinions and understanding your students or colleagues better. 

To Do:

  1. Explore an online survey tool. 
  2. Experiment by creating and conducting a five-question survey of your peers about ways to use technology-enabled activities.
    • Users of the Google suite might try Google Forms, which store data in a spreadsheet stored in your drive (and can be embedded in other sites). Other survey tools like Mentimeter, Socrative, and Poll Everywhere more survey tools listed in the Extend Toolkit.
  3. Include a link to your activity as your response for this activity.
  4. After you make your submission, save the web address to your response (found in the green confirmation box) so you can use it later for your badge submission form. 

This activity is part of the Let’s Experiment section of the Experimenter Module.

  • Surveying – Menti
    by Gitanjali Shanbhag (@gshanbhag)

    I’ve been thinking of using anonymous polls and a way of getting responses anonymously in a presentation titled Supporting Mental Health in the Workplace. This is why I explored Mentimeter.
