Breakout rooms 

You as a teacher can divide the students into smaller groups when they are to discuss a specific subject or interact in other activities or projects.

Polls 

Activate your students through polls, ask questions and allow the students to answer using either Mentimeter or the Poll-function in Zoom.  

Mentimeter 

Mentimeter is a web-based presentation tool and digital system for interactive polls in real-time, where the participants use an automatically generated code to vote in multiple choice questions or write their own answers. As a teacher you can use it in presentations or in education, both in the classroom or in Zoom-held classes.  

Mentimeter, presentation and quiz tools as LTI-app in Canvas
