Exciting New Features Enhance IML ViewPoint Premium

hannahwidell  by Hannah on May 03, 2012

IML ViewPoint Premium now includes functionality to perform advanced analysis on voting results during or after your meeting. There are three different analysis types: demographic split, compare and recall. These new features allow you to revisit results and gain valuable perspective from your meeting.

Here’s how these analysis types work:

Demographic split: Split voting results into a variety of demographics like gender, region, age or any other characteristic of interest to determine data trends.

Compare: See an instant comparison between voting results from the same, or similar, questions. Use this analysis type as a before and after tool to easily gauge progress or to compare priorities.

Recall: Revisit any poll within your presentation to emphasize prior voting results or to change how the results are displayed.

These new features of IML ViewPoint Premium allow you to further analyze and gain insight from your results, ensuring that not only are the right questions asked and answered, but that there are valuable takeaways from your meeting. Learn more about IML ViewPoint Premium here.

Technology in Learning and Development

According to the ASTD 2011 State of the Industry Report: Increased Commitment to Workplace Learning, “Many organizations are investing in technology-based delivery systems and methods, and the growing use of technology to deliver content will continue to shape the future of the learning field.” And, “ASTD’s research demonstrates that leading-edge L&D departments incorporate more technology components and processes than their lesser performing counterparts. As the economy and the employment situation stabilize, we expect a return to the growing use of technology to design, deliver, and manage L&D.”

Get Interaction in Your Sessions with Wireless Response Systems

hannahwidell  by Hannah on Sep 15, 2011

Wireless response systems are an educational assessment tool, designed to build an attractive and engaging learning environment for both presenters and audience members.

Before the introduction of classroom response systems, a presenter could only hope that information had been fully received and understood. Now, using classroom clickers, it is possible to track the progress and understanding of students individually or en masse. IML software allows presenters to ask students questions in a variety of ways, including multiple choice or numeric value formats. Audience voting systems allow participants to respond anonymously or, using student ID coding, in such a way that the presenter can identify a particular respondent.
