Hacking stuff together with Google Spreadsheets: A simple electronic voting system

Next week I’ll be presenting at Dev8eD (A free event for building, sharing and learning cool stuff in educational technology for learning and teaching!!) doing a session on ‘Hacking stuff together with Google Spreadsheets’. As part of this session I’ll be rolling out some new examples. Here’s one I’ve quickly thrown together to demonstrate UNIQUE and FILTER spreadsheet formula. It’s yet another example of me visiting the topic of electronic voting systems (clickers).

gEVS – An idea for a Google Form/Visualization mashup for electronic voting

First I should say I don’t think this is the best solution, in fact an earlier post from 2008 DIY: A wi-fi student response system is probably a solution, if perhaps needing more tidying up, but I’m posting anyway just on the of chance that this might inspire or help solve someone else’s problem. This […]

Free SMS voting using intelliSoftware SMS Gateway service

[flickr]130164091[/flickr] Previously I written about Using a Learning Apps (xLearn) textwall for SMS voting for £25/year, but what if you haven’t got £25 to spare? How about free SMS voting*, and when I say free, I don’t mean free for the first 15 votes like SMSPOLL.net or free for the first 30 votes like PollEverywhere.com, […]

Using a Learning Apps textwall for SMS voting for £25/year

I’ve written about the different ways you can do electronic voting without buying clickers a number of times from creating a simple wi-fi system, to using services like polleverywhere.com, to even using Twitter (more on the latest on this one in a separate post). For the ‘eAssessment Scotland 2010: Marking the decade’ conference we ran […]

MASHe Review: Electronic voting systems (clickers)

For my first theme I want to revisit electronic voting systems (EVS). EVS has been used in education for a […]

JISC Winter Fayre: Voting and Google Wave Presentations

Things have been quite on the blogging front as we dug out the tinsel to celebrate all things JISC at our Winter Fayre. We managed to squeeze almost 30 different keynotes, workshops and sessions into the day, including two by yours truly. I had the honour of presenting a short overview of electronic voting present […]

Integrating twitter voting and feedback into PowerPoint

Regular readers of this blog will know that one of my current interests is using twitter as a live in-class voting tool (TwEVS). Today, via Jane Hart, I was made aware of ‘Free PowerPoint Twitter Tools’ developed by Timo Elliott. Timo’s solution not only integrates voting within a PowerPoint presentation, but he has some other […]

TwEVS – Presentation (using twitter for electronic voting)

Yesterday I presented TwEVS to the e-Learning Alliance FE/HE SIG held at University of St. Andrews. My presentation (including audio) is below: The day included presentations on remote teaching using video conferencing, electronic voting systems and an introduction to twitter, so finishing on TwEVS seemed to round the day off nicely. When I get a […]

ALT-C 2009 I: Mobile technology – proximity push and voting/polling on Android

Just back from ALT-C 2009 having been asked to present a session with colleagues on EduApps (this resulted from JISC RSC UK’s donation of an EduApps stick to all conference delegates and ALT members). Over the next couple of days I’ll be making a series of posts to highlight some of the best bits. For […]
