Polleverywhere.com ( based in USA)

Why am I using them?

No funding for clickers

Page 3: Carol Withey (a technophobe!) Text-please add entry to phonebook (polls)-07624806527 Smartphone/web- Tweet @poll University of Greenwich

Cost to students – depends on their text package – they are texting a UK number

Car

Students can also vote via web / Smartphone and Twitter and web widget ???? ( therefore remotely! )

It is possible to track individual responses ( either by mobile phone or by assigning a code/ number to each phone number)

The system costs about £40 per month for up to 250 students – ‘roll on and off’ as and when you like

Two people can use the system for that price (but can cheat with generic email address)

It is free for classes up to 30 (seminars)

The company provide packages for HE

• I used the system for 5 weeks in 2 hour Criminal Law lectures. (130 students )

• Multi choice Qs

• 3 per week before /after break/end

• 15 minutes per week

Questionnaire feedback and analysis- I have put on the ESTICT website

• 79 responses

• 100% bring phone to University

• 67% - unlimited tariff

Page 12: Carol Withey (a technophobe!) Text-please add entry to phonebook (polls)-07624806527 Smartphone/web- Tweet @poll University of Greenwich

On cost of voting

67% - ‘excellent or good’ ( including 47% of those on limited tariffs)

Another 28% of the total said reasonable

Only 2 students said unreasonable

New research – phones v clickers

(92 students)

1) Graphics – almost the same ( excellent/good)Phone has moving bars and response counter

Clickers has response counter, timer and correct answer indicator

2) Time taken up –

Phone 64% just right

Clicker 86% just right ( clickers took up more time!

However…. misconstrued question! (comments suggest referring to

actual process of voting) I Did not use ‘keywords’ or get them to put

number in phone!!

Page 18: Carol Withey (a technophobe!) Text-please add entry to phonebook (polls)-07624806527 Smartphone/web- Tweet @poll University of Greenwich

9) Clickers or phones?

• 94% clickers• 6% phones

• Reasons ……………

• Nearly all said because clicker quicker and easier to vote – but did not use keywords or store number

• Some said focusing more on texting the right number than looking at questions

• A few said the cost

Page 19: Carol Withey (a technophobe!) Text-please add entry to phonebook (polls)-07624806527 Smartphone/web- Tweet @poll University of Greenwich

My preference? - phones• Cheaper than clickers

• Easy to set up a poll and download into PP

• It does not disrupt lectures (in 5 weeks there were no interruptions with phones going off) and less hassle/time

• Prefer live moving graphs

• Some of the clickers did not register

• Students are unlikely to forget their phones

• Fiddly saving data with clickers

• Remote voting

• All staff can use in seminars up to 30

• User friendly

• E-mail support

Phones can be used for other purposes (induction)

• Would you prefer to be handed out ‘clickers’

Note: this a flawed question in as much as students have not experienced the clicker system yet

43 (54%) Prefer clickers 27 (34%) Prefer phones 9 (12%) Don’t mind

• The main reason give for clickers was that although they liked using phones they thought clickers might be best as some of their friends could not get reception

My observations

• Cheaper than clickers?

• Easy to set up a poll and download into power point

• It does not disrupt lectures

• Students are unlikely to forget their phones

• In the whole 5 weeks there were no interruptions !!

• I used PE for 5 weeks- students may lose enthusiasm as theyear progresses

• Negative - reception in the lecture room ( QA080 – no orange – but KW315 –all had reception)

• I am conducting a comparative analysis of the feedback with use of ‘Turningpoint’ ( a clicker system)
