EduApp

Main content

The EduApp is an interactive smartphone application for academic life and classroom interaction at ETH Zurich. Use the EduApp web access to create and activate clicker questions, present the results of clicker questions and collect student feedback during your course.  

Students like clicker questions and want more of them! During the last Autumn Semester 100 lecturers used the EduApp in their teaching, reaching around 10,150 students. Teachers liked the EduApp too:

Dr Markus Kalisch: “With the EduApp I get immediate feedback from students, even if there are several hundred of them in the lecture course.”

Dr Meike Akveld: “The EduApp gives me direct feedback on whether students have understand what I have taught. I always ask one of the students to explain the right answer, which is often helpful. It is also a pleasant change for them.”
