Electronic voting system

Wooclap is an online voting system used to poll groups of students in a lecture or tutorial session. Students respond via a web browser on their own device.

With Wooclap, questions are pushed to students’ web-enabled devices and these devices are then used to send back responses. These responses are collated by Wooclap and can be displayed on the lecturer’s computer. Lecturers are not restricted to just multiple choice questions and can ask more open questions that require students to construct answers of their own. Wooclap brings a more user friendly interface and presenters will have more control over their events and how participants access them.
