Good point!

I’m seeing a few comments from attendees that are only going to panelists. Please switch to ALL panelists and attendees

yes, but they don’t really do it properly
Annie Zeidman-Karpinski

For the getting attention of students, I also think that the clapping is less good for folks with hearing loss/Deaf. Something visual (like raising hands) is better. **according to me based on opinion

Is there any recommended length or general guidelines for these pre-class activities?
Julianne Yost
47:05
Is the pre-class work graded? I have found if it’s not graded then students won’t usually do it. I’ve had pre-lab quizzes but asking students to read the textbook before class has never worked.

I have found embedding a quiz question in my "concept" videos (typically 7 mins in length) before class gets 90% of them to see it and engage with it. Basing clicker questions on the pre-material also helped, I found.
Mary Oswald

I will often show the axis labels, but blank out the data, and ask the students what they expect to see, even offer clicker options, before showing the actual data
Daniel Baker

I've tried multiple polling systems but find them to distract from the flow of the class. I prefer thumb meters or fists of 5.
Julianne Yost
01:12:23
We’ve thought about it but can’t find free software available for classes larger than 170. Don’t want the added expense of the clickers.

We use Top Hat. $24-30 per semester for all classes
Melody Jewell
01:13:33
Kahoot is a fun free program that you can use
Ching-Yu Huang
01:13:59
Top Hat gradebook can sync to Blackboard gradebook
Gabriella Kirkley
01:15:08
Melody, do you want to explain a bit about Kahoot?
Mary Oswald
01:15:19
I like iClicker's instructor remote as I can seemlessly go from lecture to questions.
Asha Rao
01:15:35
I use Learning Catalytics which has very different question types...sketching, short answer, word clouds, mutliple answer, multiple choices, calculations....more than any thing i have seen and it costs 20$ per year...
Tabitha Buehler
01:16:00
I also use and love Learning Catalytics.
Melody Jewell
01:16:02
I don't use it myself, a colleague does. But you can give questions to students they have limited time to respond. Points are awarded based on how long they take to answer (faster = more points)
Melody Jewell
01:16:23
I personally use Learning Catalytics as well - it's free with the Pearson package
Sherese Richards
01:16:28
I currently use iClickers in large classes and someties Kahoot- which is free.
Gabriella Kirkley
01:17:36
Asha, is there a limit on the number of students that can use Learning Catalytics?
Annie Zeidman-Karpinski
01:17:41
kahoot generates a spreadsheet of participant names and answers, but students don’t need to use their real name to use the program. So in theory you could give students credit, but it would be a pain.
Deb Pires
01:18:19
Do we end at 1? or 12:55?
Julianne Yost
01:21:53
Which systems allow you to add your own figures (ChemDraw, etc.)? Last time I used one, I could only enter text.
Melody Jewell
01:22:22
Learning Catalytics you can upload pictures. I don't know about Kahoot
David Thomp
01:27:24
Where will the presentation be posted?
Asha Rao
01:28:02
No there is no limit on the number of students that can use LC

Post-Assessment Survey - let us know how we did: https://yalesurvey.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3ZQucMlbG8H6MaF
Julianne Yost

If you have a chance to answer this, or maybe some of the audience, if there are 450 students needing to take a course, would you rather have two large sections (up to 225 students per class possibly taught by 1-2 instructors), or seven small sections (75 students max) taught by up to 5 different instructors?
