Comments on Mentimeter in 2021

“I use Mentimeter (pro-version) during virtual classsroom sessions, webinars, workshops and presentations for activating previous knowledge, to identify beliefs or opinions, or to start discussions. Very easy to use. Mentimeter has different types of questions, and it enables you reuse events. It can be used with large groups as well. The free version has serious limitations.” Wilfred Rubens, E-Learning Advisor, Netherlands

“”Quick and easy data collection, current poll and voting.” K12 teacher, Croatia

“Making live presentations to large audiences more interactive and engaging.” Brian Mulligan, Head of Online Learning Innovation, Ireland

“Good tool to engage students, capturing their ideas and opinions about the topics we address in the classroom” Victor Hansse, teacher, Netherlands

“We use Mentimeter to gather opinions quickly – often as an icebreaker. The word clouds generated are good tool for discussion.” OU Learning Design Team, UK

“It comes in handy during online sessions” Academy Manager, Netherlands
