Overall Satisfaction with Mentimeter

Mentimeter is widely used across different departments for various engagement purposes during webinars, seminars, team meetings etc., In today's pandemic scenario, online meets are intensively used throughout the companies and so there are strong needs for use of software/web applications for engagement purposes. Mentimeter solves the problem for long tired one-way meetings by providing tools to engage the audience in a proactive manner. It also helps presenter to come up with an interactive presentation in a noticeably brief time.
  • Engagement of the users by giving them a real time space to give their input.
  • Fast & Easy Interface to create quizzes, slides and polls.
  • Simplicity for presenter as well as for users.
  • Follow-up sessions based on user inputs and a room for real time analysis.
  • User Interface (of Quiz, Poll etc.,) should have more designs for free version.
  • Time based quiz and polls would be a plus. [ Engagement Scheduling]
  • Partial marking and time-based marking could be added in a quiz.
  • Extensions to add the engagement in PDF and Word files could also be an addition to its functionality.
  • Continuous Engagement
  • Live Quiz and Polls
  • Feature rich Surveys
  • Word Cloud formation
  • Real-time Response
  • Follow-Ups and analysis
  • Integration with Microsoft PPT Presentation
  • Increased efficiency of decision making based on real-time feedbacks from live polling.
  • Improved engagements during various online video sessions.
  • Enriched discussions in large teams through real time quiz, word cloud and user responses.
Most used part of Mentimeter is that unlimited users can participate in an event like- poll, quiz or word cloud while its alternative has a cap on maximum number of concurrent participation in their free plans.
Microsoft Powerpoint could be used to create polls and quiz but in that real-time response cannot be taken as it doesn't provide interactivity with audience directly [One have to use extensions/plugins and third party applications like Mentimeter to get feedbacks].
Kahoot is majorly used for quizzes and its usage is also somewhat limited to one type of engagement however Mentimeter provides a wide range of services.
Poll Everywhere and Kahoot both has engagement caps on maximum audience where Kahoot can support 100 users and Poll Everywhere can support upto 25 audience in their free plans. This is a game change for Mentimeter as there is no restrictions as so in free plan on maximum audience size.

Mentimeter is very useful for continuous engagements and follow ups during webinars, seminars, team meetings, online classes and surveys. Even during offfline conferences it could be well suited for increasing the interactivity.
However, it could be less effective when the audience size is too small like a group meeting or video conferencing with friends and family.
