The presentation and quiz tool Mentimeter
Mentimeter is a web-based presentation tool and digital system for interactive polls, quizzes and more. Participants can vote in real time, through an automatically generated code, for different alternatives or write their own answers. As an employee or student at KTH, you can use this in your presentations or when you are teaching, both in classrooms and over Zoom.
Quiz questions in your presentation
Mentimeter is a presentation tool that has several different types of interactive quiz questions for many different occasions, including multiple choice, open questions, word clouds and two-dimensional graphs.
Feel free to read the guides to question types for Mentimeter (help.mentimeter.com) .
You create or import your presentation and questions through the Mentimeter website. Then the participants can answer the questions through a code on the website menti.com or via a direct link from you.
The results from the vote can easily be shared during the vote or afterwards.
Employees and students, in classrooms and online
KTH has a campus license for Mentimeter, so all employees and students have access to the tool.
Since Mentimeter supports many different question types and the participants interact with your presentation through a digital device, such as a mobile phone, the participants do not have to be in the same room to participate. As Mentimeter is web-based, participants only have to go to the link you give them and can then actively participate in the meeting, presentation or class activities no matter where they are. If you have participants over Zoom, we recommend that you share your screen to display the result of the poll there as well, not just on the projector.
The tool is also helpful in a Flipped Classroom -situation, where students before class can answer questions at their own pace, and the questions can then be the focal point for work in the classroom.
Uses of Mentimeter
Mentimeters have many uses in many different situations, such as activating students during a lecture, voting on topics of discussion at a meeting or to gather ongoing feedback. However, flexibility can create challenges unless you are careful.
