Interactive presentations with Mentimeter

Mentimeter is an online presentation tool and a digital system for interactive surveys in real time. Up until the end of 2021 we have a campus license for Mentimeter at Umeå university.

Mentimeter can be used when teaching to activate and interact with the students. You can use different types of questions and the participants can vote or write their answers by using their cellphone, computer or tablet and all the answers will be summarized and presented visually. Mentimeter is a useful tool for gathering feedback, polling, brainstorming for example, and the results can be used for discussion.

Using tools like Mentimeter is a way to make the students understanding of certain concepts in the lecture visible.

Please note that you must not collect personal information in your presentations.
