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.

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