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

Explore an online survey tool.  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 Socrative, and Poll Anywhere are specially aimed at collecting audience feedback on mobile devices. See more survey tools listed in the Extend Toolkit.

In your response to this activity, share a link to your survey results, and share what you learned from the results.


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