Mentimeter is a web-based classroom response system (CRS). Questions can then be displayed on the main screen by a host to learners in a session.

Learners respond anonymously by entering a given number code into a simple web site on their phone or any internet-connected device. Mentimeter then collates learners' responses and the host can then choose to show on the main screen. 

Why we like Mentimeter!

  • Help learners quickly check their own understanding and you get a feel for the groups' understanding
  • May promote deeper learning through discussion
  • Can stimulate interaction through a 'fun factor'
  • Anonymity may encourage engagement giving less confident learners a 'voice'
  • Simple and intuitive to use
  • No need for users to create an account to create or interact if users choose not to.
  • No additional software downloads required - opens in browser! (please use Google Chrome for the best experience)

Important Note: For General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) purposes, Mentimeter cannot be used to collect identifiable personal or demographic information about your audience, please refer to the University's Mentimeter Usage Policy.

The University has an institutional licence for Mentimeter which allows staff and students to create an institutional account with their CCCU email address, username, and password. Accounts created in this way allow users to access all free and premium content! Make sure to create your account by following the downloadable guide to see how to create an account in this way (page 1) rather than creating one of their standard accounts which are very limiting and do not contain all available features, and what to do if you need to copy Mentimeter questions / presentations created from an earlier personal account into your CCCU one (page 2).
