Maple T.A. is a web-based teaching and assessment tool which allows online testing and assessment of mathematically and scientifically oriented material. For more information, contact Paul McCann (School of Mathematical Sciences).
Mobile phones can be used as an alternative to clickers or personal response systems in the classroom. They provide a convenient way to engage large groups of students in lectures. You can pose questions using a readily accessible web page and students can respond to options (eg multiple-choice questions) by ringing an individual number for each option. The results are displayed for the whole class to see. To use the external VotApedia system click the link to the web site below, create an account (top right of the login page) and email firstname.lastname@example.org with your logon name (not password). You will not be able to create surveys or quizzes until you have been made a known user in the system. This system is external to the University of Adelaide, but is free to use and students do not pay for the phone call from their mobile phones if they dial as they receive an engaged signal.
