Vevox (formerly known as Meetoo) is a cloud-based student response system that enables students to vote using a web browser or the Vevox app on their own mobile device. The tutor may also enable Vevox messages so that everyone can post and view questions and comments.
Questions, answer options and results can be presented through a web browser by the tutor. Alternatively, they can embed questions in their PowerPoint presentations using the free Vevox add-in.

Vevox and in-class surveys
