Meetoo institutional pilot

The University has purchased an institutional licence for the Meetoo student response system. This will now be available for the academic year 2017/2018 until August 2018, at which point a longer-term decision will be made. There are already over 50 individual users, and this extended pilot will allow us to test a scalable centrally managed, supported and funded system.

All users of the institutional system can create meetings with up to 1500 students.

Getting a Meetoo account

If you are new to Meetoo, please visit the sign-up page to request an account

  • Make sure you use the University email address you wish to use to sign in to Meetoo – for example pq1m15@soton.ac.uk or P.Quarrel@soton.ac.uk.
  • Note that you cannot use a personal email address such as phoebe.quarrel@gmail.com.
  • You will receive an email invitation from hello@meetoo.io; click the link it contains and create a profile and password.

If you already have an individual Meetoo account

If you already have an individual Meetoo account, you will have received an email inviting you to join the new service. Click the link to accept the invitation and log in using your existing Meetoo username and password.

Sorry, it is not possible to move meetings and questions from your individual account to your new institutional account – but you can still access your individual account if needed. Please use the new institutional account for any new meetings you create.

The Meetoo PowerPoint add-in

The Meetoo PowerPoint for Windows add-in enables you to create and run fully integrated polling slides using PowerPoint. It is now available on all CLS PCs and UDE office PCs via the Additional Software icon on the desktop – installation takes about a minute.

Downloads for non-UDE Windows PCs and Apple Macs are available from Meetoo.

Remember that you will need to start by logging in to your Meetoo account using the Meetoo control ribbon to connect your polling slides to your Meetoo account.

Can’t use the PowerPoint add-in?

You don’t have to use the PowerPoint add-in; you can use Meetoo in a web browser and just flip between that and your slides (or PDF file, Keynote slides etc.) using Alt-Tab:

  • Hold down Alt and tap the Tab key until the program you want is highlighted.
  • Quickly press Alt-Tab to flip to the last application you used… and again to flip back again.
  • A PDF guide to Using Meetoo in a Web browser is available

Support options

Meetoo provide lots of online guides and FAQs

There is also an online Meetoo community that shares expertise and experience

We are also creating some local guidance:

Contact Adam Warren (a.j.warren@soton.ac.uk x24486) if you’d like to discuss how Meetoo can be used to support learning and teaching, or need some help getting started.
