What can feedbackr do for your teaching?

Feedbackr is anonymous
With feedbackr you get honest answers, because it is anonymous for the participants.
Be it anonymous honest feedback or answers to tricky questions – feedbackr makes it possible for you!

Results in seconds
Participation in feedbackr is very easy. Within seconds you will receive the results, regardless of audience size.

No app needed
Your participants can vote directly with feedbackr. There is no need to install an app.
You only need an internet connection and a browser.

No mutual interference
With manual voting, group dynamic effects can occur. However, since you can determine when the results are visible to all participants, your participants will not influence each other.

… for more advantages of the audience response system feedbackr, take a look at the TELucation homepage (https://telucation.tugraz.at).

From the students‘ point of view, ARS can offer yet another advantage, as the story of feedbackr‘s founder Karin Pichler shows: As an introverted, shy student she often had problems asking questions in lectures and often thought that everyone but her had completely understood. Through feedbackr, students can see the bigger picture and recognize that they are not alone in their ”not knowing“.
This knowledge, in turn, can be used either in the course to address the problem or to bring together students with different levels of knowledge and skills to form study groups.
