Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

This session will introduce delegates to the cloud-based audience response system Nearpod which has been successfully implemented in chemistry and mass spectrometry lectures at Ulster University. The session will be run as a demo of the technology giving delegates opportunity to follow and participate using their own mobile devices. Downloading the free Nearpod app in advance would be helpful though the web browser on mobile devices may also be used.

We will also report on our experiences of using Nearpod and present evaluation data from student groups with regard to its uptake and usage.
