During your lecture
Depending on your display method, you will either show the questionSMS website on screen or show your questions directly in your lecture slides.
Remember to inform your students of the phone number – 9002 8065 – and the SMS format:
If you have more than one question, you will have to inform your students of the relevant code for that particular question.
Using questionSMS website
1. Before you lecture starts, log in to the questionSMS website.
2. Click SMS Response on the sidebar.
3. Check the questions that you want to display.
4. Click View Selection.
5. Your questions can be viewed through a tabbed interface. The website will update automatically once the questionSMS receives SMSes from the students. Click Refresh if there are no updates.
