In a nutshell: What is PINGO?

Logo: © Pingo

PINGO is a web-based tool for teaching that allows you to ask students different types of questions during lectures: Single Choice, Multiple Choice, Text, or Numeric. The questions can be answered immediately and, if desired, anonymously via cell phone. This way, even in lectures with a large number of participants, you keep an overview of the learning progress and receive feedback on your course. Consequently, the further teaching process can be adjusted to the students’ needs.
