Here are a few tips on how to take part in a Vevox meeting or session.
You can go to Vevox.app in your web browser, either on your phone, laptop or tablet. Or you can download the ‘Vevox’ app from your app store.
Once you are on Vevox.app, you will need to enter the 9-digit Session ID that will be given to you by the presenter/lecturer/meeting host.
Watch this short video on how to answer polls, Q&A (Questions & Answers) as well as use the survey functionality.
The polls will automatically appear on your phone/laptop/tablet when the presenter opens each poll. It will then ask you to submit your answer. Select your relevant choice. There will be an instruction on your screen to tell you:
- if your vote was submitted automatically,
- if you need to press 'Send' to submit your answer or
- if you want to change the answer press the clear button.
The main way to ask questions as a participant is through the Q&A message board. To access the Q&A board, click on the middle icon on your screen that looks like a speech bubble. (If there is a red dot next to the speech bubbles, it means that there are new messages.)
You will find the space to type your message/comment/ideas or questions at the top of your device screen. Press the 'Arrow' when you are finished typing and ready to send the message to the Q&A board for all to see.
You can also upvote a comment from another participant by tapping the 'thumbs up' icon.
Remember you can ask as many questions or post as many comments as you would like. Sometimes the meeting host/ presenter/lecturer may have a moderation function on for the Q&A board. In that case, your message will not instantly appear on the Q&A board. It first needs to be approved by the moderator.
You can also sort your own Q&A board by most recent or most like. Alternatively, when your Q&A board is very busy, filter it to show only:
- messages that you have submitted,
- messages with replies on them
- or all messages in the Q&A board.
A survey are polls that can be answered in your own time and at your own pace (in other words no live polling). When the survey has been created and ‘started’ by the presenter, it will appear in the clipboard icon on your screen ready for you to answer. Your presenter will let you know if there is a certain time/date that you need to give your answers by. Simply click on your selected answer and look out for the ‘Submit’ button at the end of the survey.
A self-paced quiz will also appear here. This means you will be scored on the questions and will be able to see the correct answers after completion.
All sessions are set to anonymous by default. There is no way of knowing who is who when using your device. But the presenter does have the ability to change this if they want. If the profiles setting is switched to identified, Vevox will ask you for a first and last name, after you enter the 9-digit Session ID. It will look like this:
