There are several life feedback systems, often also known as Audience-Response Systems (ARS).
These systems can be used in face-to-face lectures to check the current state of knowledge of the students. However, some systems also offer the function of providing a chat wall as an anonymous wall of questions over a longer period or offer the possibility of anonymous self-testing of the content.
PINGO stands for "Peer Instruction for very large groups" and is the web-based live feedback system for teaching at Paderborn University to activate students, especially in large courses.
Just as Günther Jauch uses the audience joker to involve studio viewers in the quiz show "Wer wird Millionär", lecturers can use PINGO to get their students out of their traditionally passive role and actively involve them in the lecture. They can answer questions asked by the lecturer during the course of using their smartphones, tablets or laptops. Only one question can be asked at a time but this can be repeated to compare the results before and after the peer instruction. A tutorial for PINGO can be found here.
Tweedback is a German web-based voting system supported by the EU. Besides different types of questions, it also has a (moderated) chat wall and status displays for life events. It can be used by teachers without login. However, we recommend registration, as this allows the questions and chat wall to be used asynchronously by students over a period of several days.
ARSnova is a freely usable voting system developed at the Technical University of Central Hessen. Lecturers need a login for ARSnova. A guest access can be used for a limited time, but then the sessions cannot be prepared or stay open for a long time. ARSnova offers various functions, besides questions for live feedback (which can be provided with pictures) there is also the possibility to collect anonymous questions and comments from students and to set preparation tasks which can be answered anonymously and where the correct answers are shown to the students afterwards. Documentation
Anonymous feedback on workshops and events. The tool BitteFeedback allows an easy creation of feedback questions e.g. for use at events. Neither the person creating nor the persons giving feedback need to register for use. Questions can be asked openly or with multiple-choice evaluation. Links are generated to fill out the feedback form and to view the results. Try out the tool
Question and answer rounds with digital support. The tool Fragmich.xyz supports the design of question-answer-rounds during events. Moderators can start a question and answer session on any topic and choose a code to do so. Then they give this code to the participants. They can enter their questions and rate all questions. Finally, all questions are presented in the order in which they were rated. The tool can be used openly. It does not require registration/login. Try out the tool
