One swipe. That’s all you need, to add the reactions from the students to your presentation screen. We like to make classroom interaction as easy as possible for all lecturers and students. That’s why you can now find this feature on the updated Shakespeak Dashboard. It’s the place where you create your interactive sessions and follow live reactions. And afterwards you can even review all results.
The Shakespeak Dashboard has a completely new look & feel. That’s why we’d like to take a minute to highlight some of its features! If you have an account, you login straight away. Otherwhise, click here to create a free account.
Before the session
Decide how your students can interact before the sessions starts. React or ask questions via Web, Twitter and/or SMS? Take your pick. Simply adjust the response settings via the Dashboard. Anonymity often provokes more reactions. Don’t want to anonymise the students? Then select your identification option. Ask questions such as “What is your name?” or “What’s your gender?”. After the session you’ll then have a practical overview of who gave which reaction during the session.
As you can see, you can easily personalize features via the Dashboard. It’s also a great way to turn your response website into one big interactive platform. How?
- Share voting results: Received striking voting results due to your challenging questions? With just one click your students can share the results on Facebook and Twitter, or send them to fellow students or others who are interested.
- #Hashtags:Optimally use Twitter by pointing out hashtags before the class. It’s a convenient way for the audience to follow tweets concerning your presentation or lecture.
- Survey:Let the audience evaluate the class and get instant valuable feedback via online surveys.
During the session
Follow the students responses live on the Dashboard and select provoking reactions to add to your presentation screen instantly.
Did you make your presentation a little breezier by adding a quiz? Announce the winner on the spot by checking the results per individual respondent. Having access to all individual results is also an excellent feature if you’d like to follow up your students.
After the session
Interactive presentations create movement. That’s why many like to take a look at the responses afterwards and evaluate. Via the Dashboard you can see an overview of voting results, answers to (multiple choice) questions, and open reactions. The survey responses are also always available and easily accessible online.
We’re curious to hear which features you’ll be using during your next presentation. Have any feedback regarding the new look & feel? Let us know!
