What is an audience response tool?

Audience response tools allows “presenters” to interact with students and other audiences via polls, text responses, or multiple choice questions displayed through their mobile devices (iPad, laptop, desktop computer, mobile phone). Vevox sessions are referred to as “meetings” and can gather responses from up to 500 individual participants.

Benefits of Vevox

Vevox enables instant feedback from your learners and can be used to enhance engagement and participation within face to face lectures. Use of Vevox faciliates discussion and enables all students to take part, i.e it is an inclusive tool. Students take an active role within the class.
Use of an audience response tool facilitates Technology Enhanced Learning, which is embedded in the Student Experience Plan at USW.

Using an Audience Response Tool to gather responses is also a quick and effective way for you to identify areas of the curriculum that need more attention.
