Mentimeter is the University-supported web-based polling and response tool. It can be used by staff and students to add interactivity to teaching and learning sessions and presentations.
Mentimeter users can ask their participants to respond to questions using their smartphones, laptops or tablets. They can then show the collated responses on screen.
Your tutors might include Mentimeter questions in their sessions and ask you to provide a response either individually or in groups using a mobile phone or other internet-enabled device.
Access the mentimeter response site at menti.com and add an eight-digit code given to you by your tutor.
The code will usually be displayed at the top of the screen. You may also be given a QR code or a link to access the questions
The example below shows the results from a word cloud question. The responses are collated on screen so that the size of the words represent the frequency of the response.
Mentimeter allows for a range of different question types. Click each tab above to see the questions types.
It is usually straightforward to provide a response using your device by selecting from different options, adding text, or using clicks/points or sliders, then selecting ‘submit’.
