Vevox is the new name for Meetoo but many support resources use the old name.

Vevox is a classroom response system (CRS) 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 Vevox messages so that students can post questions and comments.

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

Vevox supports large cohorts of up to 1500, and is also suitable for use by conferences, visit days and other events. Participants do not need to create an account or sign in, and polling is anonymous unless you ask people to enter their name or contact details.

Pilot service

CLIPP is continuing to run its pilot service during the academic year 2019/20. Following a successful initial pilot with around 30 active users, Aston has funded a second year to gain further feedback from students and staff and inform a decision about a fully supported service.

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 Vevox website as that will not be supported during the pilot.

Online support for Vevox

Vevox 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 Vevox in-class which you could link to from your Blackboard courses.

New for October 2019: Classroom Response System User Group with regular meetings

Vevox also has a fully-featured add-in for PowerPoint (Windows only) that is available in all Aston teaching rooms and can be installed on your office PC or laptop.

Please note that in most cases you should contact Adam Warren for advice and support about the use of Vevox during the pilot, rather than Aston’s TEL Support team or the Vevox support team. This particularly applies to queries about the educational use of Vevox. 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 Vevox 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 Vevox by adding a link to that page on the relevant Blackboard course.
