Who's a Facilitator? You might be a university lecturer or a school teacher; a professional speaker or trainer; a marketing consoultant running a focus group. Think of a "Facilitator" as someone who guides or leads a group of people through some sort of a dialogue or activity. It might be a brainstorm... a poll or survey within a presentation... or a test or quiz. The emphasis is on enabling the risk-free, easy and instant participation of every single Participant.

Xorro-Q makes that easy, and instant. Using Xorro-Q, you can run completely anonymous activities, with no preparation whatsoever. Alternatively, you might prefer to track and automatically assess responses and engagement over many sessions, to observe how identified participants and groups develop. It's entirely up to you. Whatever your needs, our mission is to make it easy and flexible for you, the Facilitator.

Facilitator Plans: All Facilitator (including Free Facilitators) have full access to Xorro-Q's functionality. The Plan assigned to the Facilitator determines the size of audience with which that Facilitator can work using Xorro-Q (ie the maximum number of respondents in any one session). To “run” activities with participants accessing them, you’ll need to be assigned a Plan with enough capacity for your largest audience.

The Plan assigned to you is displayed at the top right hand corner of your QF page ( Plans can be reassigned instantly by any Xorro administrator. The following in your Institution are set up as Xorro administrators: Institution Manager.

Your Facilitator URL is: This is the url your participants will browse to in order to join and participate in your sessions. It is unique to you, and it stays with you. You can ask us to customise your Facilitator URL for a small once-off fee.
