    • 6. Quick Preview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLT4LsJ46fU
    • 7. User Centered Design If it is not great for the individuals using the application, then it needs to change!
    • 8. Lessons We Learned… Presenters want options… Core Question types: True / False Multiple Choice Open Response Numeric Variable Slider Word Cloud
    • 9. Lessons We Learned… • Chat is not always a good thing. • Just because the system can, doesn’t mean it should.
    • 10. Lessons We Learned… Less is more.
    • 11. Lessons We Learned… Usability trumps aesthetics and technology especially for technology sake.
    • 12. Mobile Reference: 1 http://www.digby.com/mobile- 2 http://www.localytics.com/blog/2013/mobile-statistics/statistics/ • 56% of American adults are now smartphone owners. 1 • 31% of adults own a tablet device. 2

    • 19. Why Open Source? • Community of Support • Community Development • Ripple Website http://ripple-core.uoregon.edu/ • Issues Forum https://github.com/uoregon- libraries/ripple/issues • Contribute and help others

    • 21. FAQ Is there a record of student responses? – Yes, each session generates a report that can be accessed by the presenter. The report can also be exported as a csv file.
    • 22. FAQ What if I have a student that doesn’t have a device? – Small Group or Pair Students – Have multiple browsers on a single computer – Use cheap mobile device: iTouch, Kindle, old smartphone with only wireless
    • 23. FAQ If I let students use their mobile devices in class, won’t it be a distraction? – Maybe, depending on how you allow students to use the device. Isn’t this the same problem as having a laptop in front of them?
    • 24. FAQ Can Ripple use 3G/4G? Yes, since Ripple is just a website, as long as the computer running Ripple has an external ip, any cell data plan can be used, or, better yet, just use wi-fi (no data charges apply)!
