What is Mentimeter?

Mentimeter is a cloud based tool (similar to Socrative/Poll Everywhere) that can be used to ask questions and initiate formative assessment within a lecture or session. It is free to set up a basic account, which will allow you to create two questions per presentation with no limitation on the number of participants. If you want to include more questions or have access to additional features such as security and privacy, customisation and exporting results, there are a few subscription options available. Students can access the Mentimeter from their own devices to respond to questions/polls.

  • Students can use their own devices to engage with activities
