The use of polling (Q & A) with an interactive display has been shown to significantly enhance learning outcomes. To support this important capability, ViewSonic has partnered with Qwizdom to offer Oktopus interactive presentation, collaboration, and polling software.
Oktopus offers over 70 interactive learning tools, plus collaboration and polling capabilities, all of which seamlessly integrate with ViewSonic ViewBoard and interactive projectors like the budget-friendly ViewSonic PS750W and PS750HD ultra-short throw projectors.
With a one-time download of the free Qwizdom Notes + App to their iOS, Android, and Windows touchscreen devices, students can respond in real-time to questions posed by teachers during the learning process. Teachers can immediately see how many responded correctly, then adjust lesson plans based on both this immediate formative feedback plus an array of data reports. Eight included question types let teachers change up the format to meet differing learning objectives:
- Multiple Choice (2 to 6 choices)
- Yes / No
- True / False
- Sequence (up to 8)
- Rating Scales
- Text Input
- Vote (2 to 6 choices)
An all-in-one, cloud-based solution, the Notes + App enables annotation capabilities and live screen mirroring on student devices, making them active collaborative partners in any presentation.
