Typeform: - Free Online Survey & Form Builder

Typeform: - Free Online Survey & Form Builder | technologies | Scoop.it
Create awesome online forms with Typeform, the FREE online survey tool that makes asking questions easy, human & beautiful. Sign up now and try it out!
John Dalziel's insight:

Typeform takes a completely fresh approach to asking questions online and puts user experience and engagement at the forefront. Optimized to look stunning on all devices (desktop and mobile), Typeform is well worth exploring as your go-to tool for...
   - polling,
   - quizzing,
   - surveying
...and engaging...
   - learners,
   - staff
   - employers or
   - any other stakeholders.
Typeform isn't a dedicated assessment platform, but it's an ideal place to put together...
   - a short quiz,
   - a test or
   - a poll.
Users can style and design their questions in hundreds of innovative and fun ways as well as embed images and video to make your test informative as well as evaluative.
NOTE: With a Typeform account users can review the results of every form they've created in the application, and they can also have Typeform pass results into a Google Spreadsheet.
This offers a lot more portability of data for...
   - printing,
   - exporting or
   - simply collating for later use.
If practitioners are comfortable with their learners using their email to signup to Typeform, the tool can be of great value in many different areas of study.
Typeform can be used for research to poll or survey opinions and feedback. While it is easy to deliver forms digitally using social media or email, one more interactive way is to take advantage of the mobile interface and have students poll attendees in person using devices at events or in public.

ParticiPoll free audience polling for PowerPoint

ParticiPoll free audience polling for PowerPoint | technologies | Scoop.it
Free audience polling add-in for PowerPoint that uses audience members' mobile devices for voting and displays results live in your slides.
John Dalziel's insight:

ParticiPoll is a free audience polling plugin for PowerPoint that allows polls to be run quickly and with no need for additional clickers to be used.
Learners can vote via any internet-enabled device.
Signing up with ParticiPoll is free for basic features.
Once logged in, download the free plugin for PowerPoint.
Once the free plugin has been installed, you will see this new toolbar within PowerPoint.
This toolbar lets you start and stop polling sessions. The Insert Poll button will insert a polling widget onto the current slide. You can also insert a QR code that will direct users to the correct poll page.
It works best for quick polls where users want to ask for audience opinions, or to get a feel for overall understanding. ParticiPoll isn't a proper assessment tool where you can see who answered what (but it could be used 1-to-1).
The basic ParticiPoll is free to use, and gives you access to unlimited live polls and votes.
A pro version for £2.99 a month (or £29.99 a year) allows users to view any audience comments and to access past poll data.
I found the ParticiPoll plugin very quick and easy to use.
ParticiPoll is ideal for BYOD learning environments where learners have a mix of devices.

- open the simple poll of "understand" or "confused."

 

Learners...

Microsoft Office Mix and Office Mix Gallery – the free LCMS (Learning Cloud Management System)

Microsoft Office Mix and Office Mix Gallery – the free LCMS (Learning Cloud Management System) | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:
Office Mix is an add-in for PowerPoint 2013 that allows users to create interactive educational content quickly and easily. 
Once users enable the add in they can... 
► add quizzes or polls, 
► record screen capture video, 
► insert audio and videos and 
► add and remove digital ink during the presentation. 
It is a content creation system. 
When practitioners have completed the production of their lesson or course in Office Mix, they can export the presentation as a video or as a SCORM compliant file which they can then upload to their LMS. 
What is even more exciting is the ability to share lessons by uploading them to the Office Mix Gallery, found via the menu at the top of the Office Mix screen. 
So, Office Mix Gallery could be used as a learning management system.

Presentain - Present. Engage. Grow.

Presentain - Present. Engage. Grow. | technologies | Scoop.it
Presentain helps speakers engage and grow their audiences. You use smartphone as a clicker and audience can connect to your presentation using their devices. They can ask you questions, participate in polls, send you follow-up requests, share your slides and more. While you present Presentain records your voice so when the presentation is over you can publish the slidecast (presentation slides with voice-over) and start growing your online audience.
John Dalziel's insight:

The most exciting part of Presentain is its interactivity.
Viewers are given a pin to log in to the presentation on their device allowing them to interact.
They can view the slides on their device as you present them, and share any they like on their social networks.
They can also submit questions which users will see as a notification on their smartphone.
Users, practitioners or learners can create polls and multiple choice questions, viewing the responses in real time.
They can use their smart phone as a clicker, record the live presentation and share it later, and their audience can use Presentain to request a follow up action, such as to request a copy of the slides.
Drawbacks? Users currently can’t show embedded video in the presentations, and they can’t include animations or transitions. Presentation is compatible with either Google Slides or other slides converted to PDFs.
