Meetoo (in-class polling and messages)

meetoo logo

Meetoo is a student response system that enables students to answer their tutor’s questions using their mobile phone. The results can viewed and shared immediately, providing students with individual feedback on their answer. The tutor gains an overview of the cohort’s answers, allowing them to adapt their teaching or proceed with confidence. The tutor may also enable Meetoo messages so that students can post questions and comments.

Questions, answer options and results are presented through a web browser by the tutor. Meetoo offers several question types: multiple-choice, multiple-response, free-text, word-cloud and star ratings. These can also be run as a self-paced survey, for example for mid-module evaluation.

Pilot service

CLIPP is offering a pilot service during the academic year 2018/19 which aims to gain feedback from students and staff and inform a decision about Meetoo becoming a fully supported service. The pilot service now uses the full version which supports cohorts of 1500.

If you would like to take part in the pilot, please fill in this form.

CLIPP will create your instructor account and you will receive an email which enables you to choose a password and complete the registration process.

Please do not create your own individual FREE trial account through the Meetoo website as that will not be supported during the pilot.

Online support for Meetoo

Meetoo provide some excellent video tutorials and lots of online guides and FAQs.

They also run weekly ‘getting started’ training webinars and regular education webinars.

This site has a page that offers students a brief guide to using Meetoo in-class which you could link to from your Blackboard courses.

Please note that in most cases you should contact Adam Warren for advice and support about the use of Meetoo during the pilot, rather than Aston’s TEL Support team or the Meetoo support team. This particularly applies to queries about the educational use of Meetoo. Technical questions can be usually be quickly answered yourself by viewing the tutorial videos and online guides.

Data Protection

Aston’s Legal Services have reviewed Meetoo and confirmed that the service is compliant with the GDPR and does not pose any data protection concerns. Instructors should ensure that students can access information about data collection and privacy for Meetoo by adding a link to that page on the relevant Blackboard course.
