What are your thoughts on classroom response tools (CRT)?

Submit your feedback on requirements for a classroom response tool!

The University is working towards an RFP process for a classroom response tool for the Academic Toolbox. Previous tools of this type that have been used are Top Hat and Mentimeter. There is a growing desire amongst UofT instructors to use these kinds of tools in a classroom context, where instructors can in real time get feedback about how their learners are doing.

How to submit feedback

Members of the University of Toronto community are invited to provide feedback on these draft requirements by sending their comments via email (included on the draft requirements document). If your feedback pertains to a specific item below, please reference the item number. At FASE, we've set up a form to help consolidate and prioritize feedback.

You can submit via the FASE Classroom Response Tool Draft Requirements Feedback FormThe form includes a link to the current requirements document (Draft) and solicits your feedback on:

  1. Are these the appropriate requirements?
  2. Are there more requirements?

We are working on a pretty tight timeline (responses are due by end of day on Tuesday, March 08 (for submission by Wednesday, March 09, 2022)) and this form will help us consolidate any feedback received. If you have already submitted feedback (many faculty using this type of tool were contacted directly, please do not resubmit it via this form. You're done!)

What is a classroom response tool (CRT)?

A classroom response tool (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).
