Educational Technology1 Comment

RMIT University uses Keepad, Responseware and Turning Point to provide a personal response system for students in the classroom. This is a good solution but it doesn’t cover every use case.

Sometimes you want to create a simple, immediate interactive feedback opportunities for learners in class or online over a period of time. For institutions using Google for Education a simple and cost effective approach is to use Google Forms. This post steps through the process of creating a feedback form that can be used in class by students using smart phones, tablets or laptops or by students studying online.

There are a number of steps but each step is quite small and easy.

This model has been tested with various smart phones and tablets and works very well. Once you’re familiar with the steps it becomes very easy to create forms quickly. It’s even possible to create response forms in the class to get the kind of feedback you’re looking for.

If you want more information then Howard Errey has posted two excellent posts on using BluePulse as a student feedback system and the use of Google Sites for learning.
