Interactive Audience Polling
Audience Response Systems
Audience response systems, sometimes referred to by their acronym ARS, allow participants at a meeting or other event to respond to questions, vote on candidates and prioritize lists of goals or action items. All attendees are able to participate and even the "quiet" people have a voice.
Interactive meetings are shown to improve attendee attentiveness up to 88% and increase retention as much as 27%. Audience response systems are also perfect for meetings where assessment, decision-making or voting must be conducted quickly.
Some areas where interactive audience response systems have proven especially effective:
- corporate training & classroom learning
- continuing professional education
- decision support
- town hall meetings
- market research
- internal audit, self-assessment & risk management
- employee perception surveys
