Last changed: 10 February 2020

Mentimeter is software that allows you to conduct quick tests/ “duggor” (written assignments or equivalent) at class level. You receive the students’ replies immediately during the lecture. SLU will try Mentimeter in 2020. During the trial period, 150 teachers will get to try Mentimeter in their teaching. Would you like to be one of them? Learn more below on how to access the software.

Mentimeter is software that allows students to submit answers via their smartphones that can be displayed live during presentations.

  • Using Mentimeter, you can create interesting and educational presentations for your lectures by asking questions, creating surveys, slides, images, etc.
  • Students can take part in the lecture by answering questions, providing feedback, etc.
  • You can also use it as a “dugga” to test your students’ prior knowledge before, during or after a class.
  • Finally, you can share the results and export them for further long-term analysis.
