RemotePoll 1.1 Released

FYI:  The latest version of RemotePoll was released today.  RemotePoll allows for polling at remote locations.  Ideal for video conferencing or satellite broadcasts. 

There have been significant improvements in the ease of use  (No need to configure firewalls.)

Key highlights:

Not Just for the Classroom

One of the highlights of my position is that I’ve been able to either attend or hear about some of the more imaginative uses of student response. I know that most of your time is focused on teaching, learning activities, and engaging students in course work – a challenge I admire and respect all educators for taking on every day. The thought of 30 8 year-olds for 7+ hours intimidates me in a way words fail to express. lol

But what about the little moments you’ve carved out just for fun?
