Introduction

If you’re after a very quick and easy way to take the pulse of your learners in real time, Answer Garden might be able to help – without the need to sign up for anything.

Create an open-ended question on the platform, and stand back and watch as your students’ answers come pouring in as a word cloud. It’s a simple way to see where people are and for everyone in the room to learn how other people think on the same issue with just a glance.
