Slido is a great tool you can use both online or in a face to face scenario to ask questions of your audience, vote in polls and be a part of the discussion by using a simple Q&A and polling tool.

An example of how to use this tool might be a scenario where you want to gauge some mid-lecture understanding by initiating a live Poll. This can be done by students in the lecture space on campus using their own mobile devices. This is particularly engaging for students who might not be comfortable raising their hand to answer or engage normally.

Slido can also be used in a hybrid lecture where you could have students both online and face to face. Why not use the open text feature by posing a question and letting the students respond freely both in the lecture space and remotely? This might be useful for gathering mid-lecture feedback and steering where you go next in the session for instance.

Slido can also be used for events or conferences to allow audiences participate in similar activities.
