The CLiKAPAD audience response system is perfect for use in all forms of workshops from training sessions to briefings and more. Every workshop has a goal – whether that is planning work, providing information or conducting training, and if you want to achieve your goal you need to ensure that the session is productive, inclusive and memorable. The best way to do this is to use an audience response system (ARS).
Honest feedback and open discussions
You can use the CLiKAPAD system to facilitate discussions in your workshop. The anonymous nature of the ARS ensures that you will always receive honest and unbiased responses, especially when the discussion involves opinions of other people in the room. This makes it much easier to share ideas and provide feedback, especially for those individuals who might not be the first to speak up in a meeting environment. Workshop sessions using an ARS will always benefit from the diversity of opinion.
Questions and polling
Another huge advantage of using an ARS in a workshop is the opportunity to ask questions or test the audience. You can easily carry out question and answer sessions to provide more details and information during the workshop – the CLiKAPAD system can gather responses to questions and display them instantly on the screen.
This sort of live polling can also be valuable if you want to involve testing in your workshop – either as a way to break up the session or to ensure that the points have been sufficiently covered.
Using CLiKAPAD with ppvote
The ppvote software is used with the CLiKAPAD system. It is a versatile and flexible tool that allows for simple changes to the agenda which help your workshop run smoothly. The software can allow for you to revote on an item, so if you were interested in how the results change after a discussion, the system can track it for you. Both sets of voting data can be recorded and compared either immediately or after the sessions is over.
The ppvote Matrix software is additionally ideal for list processing, so whether you have a list of risks that you wish to measure in respect of impact and likelihood, or a list of projects that want to measure in terms of business value and ease of implementation, Matrix could be ideal. At the end, or during, the voting process you can choose a variety of graphs to display including, for example, distribution charts and x-y plots.
