Google Slides Real Time Questioning

Google’s answer to powerpoint, ‘Slides’ has been upgraded today with an app that allows students to send questions in real time to the presenter.

It looks like a nice feature that allows the audience to post questions via the app.  Other audience members can vote the questions up if they want to hear the answer too.  Anonymous questioning is  possible.

Google released this video which shows the system in action.

There is also a red dot function that acts like a laser pen when presenting from a computer.

Read more about the app release here: https://docs.googleblog.com/2016/05/slidesQA.html

The ‘Slides’ application is part of the Google Apps for Education.  These apps are available to all Marjon Staff.  Please contact Zac Gribble (zgribble@marjon.ac.uk) if you would like to know more.

 

 

Clevertouch Screens

Some teaching spaces have now been equipped with the ‘Clevertouch’ screens to work either alongside or replacing projectors.

These screens can be used in the same way as the projectors using the lectern laptops to manage the content. They can also be used to interact with the content.

Please view the POV video below to see the basic functions of the screens. We are keeping the videos as raw as possible to give the most true to use example.

You will find more videos and a list of rooms with the clevertouch screens installed at elearning.marjon.ac.uk/clevertouch.
