Create an entertaining poll
Find out what your participants think or how they feel in real time by using this fun animation.
If you are not familiar with the Word Cloud, you can find its description here.
1. Click on the activity in your menu and broadcast it
Once the activity is activated, unblocked and broadcast, participants can add their words at any time and vote for the words of others.
2. Explain the activity to your participants
The participants can send words that will be displayed in the form of a word cloud in real time on the broadcasting screen.
The more a word is repeated or the more “likes” it gets, the bigger it will appear.
Participants cannot send phrases (or two words with a space between them), however, they can add words linked with hyphons (e.g. What-a-great-day) and emoticons.
3. Use filters
You can filter the words on your screen and on the Cast.
In the lower left corner of your screen you can use the following filters:
- Date: the last proposition sent will appear at the top of the list.
- Popularity: the proposition with more votes will appear at the top of the list.
Moderating the activity will allow you to hide the words that you don’t want to display on the Cast and on the participants’ devices. Learn more about moderating
We recommend not moderating this activity. However, should you decide to moderate the words before displaying them, you will have to be very quick in order to let the word cloud grow.
5. Discuss the results
While discussing the words you can choose the option Close activity. The participants will no longer be able to add new words nor to vote for them.
That way you will be able to analyze the Word Cloud.
