Join Bill Ellis for a demonstration of the audience response system he uses in a variety of learning environments. Learn how this easy to learn, highly engaging technology can improve interest and success for students and audiences. Applications include opinion polling, assessment, and team problem solving.

Audience response is a tool used to create interactive presentations. Speakers connect with audiences using simple, intuitive polling software and response devices. The software adapts to familiar programs, making it a matter of clicks before presenters are able to ask questions.

Applications include asking a group of employees what they really think about the new employee benefits or instantly assessing the proficiency of participants in compliance training - without counting a show of hands.

Learn how these systems can allow you to author and poll interactive slides natively in PowerPoint using software and devices to let you deliver and collect results from asynchronous tests and quizzes. Grading is instant and automatic.
