We are having a presidential forum and we would like attendee’s to submit questions via their handheld or tablet (IPAD or Android).

 

Ideally, they could text a number , then the President could receive them on his IPAD.  

 

Anyone do this already and have a solution?

 

Best,

 

Russ

Russ,

 

We just held a compressed video “conference” within our system, with over 40 sites connected, and we were worried about background noises from a site that was not muted….so we muted them all, except for the presenting sites.  Of course this had the effect of not allowing them to ask questions – so we setup a special email and then ask folks to send questions via Twitter using a special hashtag (you can check it out at #ipadvccs).  That worked so well that we were inundated with questions and had a hard time just trying to get them sorted so we could ask the really “good” ones.

 

Having said this – we sent out a survey afterwards and as of right now, with about 1/3 of the participants responding, most folks did not send email or tweet. It appears that 84% of the participants did not use either of these forms for questions. We did not decide until the afternoon before the big event that we were going to use this method, or perhaps we could have gotten our colleges to provide the equipment and/or people to help write the questions it might have helped.  Maybe you can have folks roaming the aisles asking for questions that can be tweeted to the facilitator?

 

Hope this helps!

 

Joy :-)

Google Moderator is ideal for this - people can ask questions and vote for questions that have already been asked. The president can sort them by votes or recency and mark them as answered in a very simple interface. PollEverywhere is good but has an upper limit in its free version (50, I think?) Otherwise you could just use twitter with a special hashtag? N On 27/09/2011, at 4:47 AM, Ron Woody wrote: > Russ, > > Take a look at polleverywhere.com.

We recently did this with a large gathering of faculty and staff during a school wide iPad best practices training. We created an open Google document and linked it from a web address we gave them. They could submit the question and the presenters had iPads and answered the questions as they were posted. It was extremely successful and easy to setup. It also gave us a record of what areas we needed to address going forward. Good luck, Joe

Thank you very much for your answers and advice. www.polleverywhere.com is a nice solution and very easy to setup. Google has some nice solutions as well. We decided to go 'off the board' and use WordPress. We created a site called "submitquestions" and allowed users to submit comments via e-mail or sms. They get posted right away, and our President just needs to refresh the screen to get new questions. Again, thank you very much for the quick and helpful reply's. Russ
