AnswerGarden is a new minimalistic feedback tool. Use it as a tool for online brainstorming or embed it on your website or blog as a poll or guestbook. AnswerGarden has many different users: site admins, bloggers, teachers, creative teams, brainstormers and more!
AnswerGarden keeps its purpose, interface and operation simple, making it a very effective tool when used in the right context. No accounts needed, it only takes seconds to create an AnswerGarden and embed it on a site. The display updates instantly – no need to refresh the page. Try out the garden below.
My favourite techtool/website/application/service is...... at AnswerGarden.ch.
It has some limitations – no more than twenty-five words can be on display at any one time. Whilst this may ensure the garden is not overgrown, it does mean that it cannot effectively represent a large collection of responses. Also, the customisation options are a little bit limited in terms of font, colour, font size, orientation etc.
I never cease to be delighted with what is available for us now. I remember the days when fordigraph machines provided our main handouts 🙂 Thanks for directing us to this little treasure. I am just starting an online study group and this will come in handy.
Hi Paul, thanks for sharing this with us. Always on the look out for simple effective, interactive tools, especially those that do not require usernames and passwords for the younger students, this has been a good discovery. Will have a go at this next week.
