We have the capability to utilize the software Mentimeter or Trivia Maker to quickly collect learners' live responses. If utilizing one of these tools, note that there is no need to download any software prior or during the class. Students can access the questions through web browser using a link that will be provided during class. Our educators will provide assistance to all leaners during this process. Although learners only need one device to participate in this class, they can enhance their experience with an additional device. The additional device can be used to access Mentimeter or Trivia Maker's trivia responses while their main device can be used exclusively for the interaction with our educators.
