Polling opinions using Wooclap

Wooclap is an online polling- and presentation tool which you can use to elicit responses from students. You present your students with questions and statements, which they can (anonymously) respond to on their phone or laptop. The results are visible immediately, something you can play into during your lecture.

Wooclap helps with

  • Collecting students’ questions and opinions in and out of class;
  • Making students participate actively and stimulating them: using Wooclap adds variety to a class;
  • Testing students’ prior knowledge on a certain subject and whether they’re up to date on their reading;
  • Better preparing students for a class by making them take a poll before class starts;
  • Promoting group discussion. Poll results are visible immediately, as a result of which you can stimulate discussion;
  • Letting students answer questions anonymously. This way quieter students are also given a voice.
