Register now for upcoming CRT Vendor Demos

Academic, Research, & Collaboration (ARC) Technologies ARC (formerly Academic and Collaborative Technologies(ACT)) has announced Classroom Response Tool (CRT) vendor demonstrations! 

We are embarking on the next phase of the procurement process for U of T's new classroom response tool (you last heard about this one when we published a call for your feedback on requirements for this type of tool). This is your chance to see these tools in action and ask questions about how this type of tool could work in your classrooms.

What is a Classroom Response Tool (CRT)? A classroom response tool (also known as an audience response system; see what is a classroom response system?) allows multiple people to annotate and comment on the same piece of digital (online) content and share those annotations with others. You see this often using cloud documents (e.g. Word, Google docs) but there are also specialized applications that offer this type of collaboration (e.g. Mentimeter, Top Hat, Poll Everywhere, Kahoot).
