Interactive Presentations and Polling

Pros

The polling feature is lovely and allows for the setting of questions and the audience can give their input using a mobile phone or any other device connected to the Internet.

Cons

But since I have to put something, you can't control , how truthful the audience are with the presentation polls.

I understand presentation can be boring, but with Mentimeter. It takes presentations to the next level plus it gives you live analytics on your presentation.

Pros

It provides like capablity for audiences to leave their opinions, polls and comments to keep your presentation rolling without outbursts or focusing on one to many questions during your presentation.

Cons

Depending on your mobile device, program may give some glitches to loading to next slide of the presentation.

A powerful software for interactive slides

2019-07-16

Mentimeter is a great tool when creating interactive slides in undergraduate classes.

Pros

The students are motivated not only because their comments, questions and answers are presented anonymously during the class, but because they use their mobile phones and see the slides.

Cons

Despite the license is not considered expensive, it also limits some of the interactive tools and can cause the students to feel fatigued.

Taking the concept of interactive to new levels

2018-02-08

Superb tool for polling during presentations

Pros

It's polling feature is awesome and allows you to set the questions and your audience can give their input using a mobile phone or any other device connected to the Internet.

Cons

I have yet to come across a con for Mentimeter. Maybe my vision is a bit blurred and I am failing to see, up to this point, the drawbacks. The only disadvantage I can mention is really related to people, the audience. And how truthful they are with the presentation polls.

Great for interactive presentations

2019-02-06

It is easy to use, can be accessed from anywhere, and most importantly is user friendly for those who are attending a presentation.

Pros

As I used this product, functionality became more clear.

Cons

The free version of this website is very limited, however, menti did give a discount to nonprofits so even on a tight budget, it is affordable.

WORD CLOUDS - my favourite thing!

2018-03-01

Engagement of staff at all levels - and that is so very important.

Pros

It is so easy to set up and customize various polls in different formats, to set up a specific brand and mode of presentation, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE that you can embed a menti directly into a Powerpoint slide so that you can directly run a presentation without breaking the flow.

Cons

Can't really think of anything significant -but perhaps I would say - lets see how else we can embed into other ways - Prezi for example? Or a live post on Workplace?

Mentimeter makes presentations engagning

2019-09-27

Love Mentimeter! It's a great way to get your audience to participate and even guide your presentation where it needs to go based on their needs. I get the best results when I ask the audience what they want to learn and since it can be annoymous I get loads of participation and engagement.

Pros

I LOVE that you can integrate this into MS Powerpoint because I have seen so many presentations go from boring to engaging with Mentimeter.

Cons

If you have a whole lot of text or long questions and answer choices, it does affect the clean look of it. So if you write a whole lot or like to ask detailed questions, this may not look as nice.

My company uses Mentimeter to do a lot of our votings and anonymous feedback/questions.

2018-02-28

Pros

My scrum team also uses the voting feature for our Sprint Retrospective.

Cons

It can get confusing when using the codes to vote during our Scrum Retrospective. It means we have to have a different code for each team member. Having to input different codes each time can be tedious.

Mentimeter

2019-03-18

Pros

The graphic of this software is decent, the presentations can be created either completely by oneself or by using offered templates. Several interesting functions can be added to it such as quizzes.

Cons

Although the result can be downloaded in PDF format, but one cannot find that function at once, and after all the PDF file will be not only with Mentimeter mark on it, but it will also be of no great quality, it will look somehow a slightly blurred.
