Discover Q

Facilitators use Xorro-Q to “ask” wide-ranging questions of any audience, and control the participation process. Questions can be spontaneous, or they can be prepared ahead of time. Participants respond using any mobile phone, tablet or computer. No downloads or plug-ins are needed.

Xorro-Q can provide instant, automated feedback and assessment to every participant. The optional real-time Leaderboard adds heightened motivation and fun for contests!  Results from questions can be instantly viewed to suit the situation: wordclouds, textstreams, voting bar charts, heatmaps.

Choose between live sessions or self-paced sessions. Your participants can access your activities from anywhere, through any browser.

Getting Started

When you sign up as a Free facilitator, a new Institution account is created for you automatically. If you want to join an existing Institution account you should get an Institution Manager from that Institution to add you as a facilitator. You’ll then be a Free Facilitator under that Institution (unless a higher plan is assigned to you). Who are the Institution Managers at my organisation?

Once you have an account with us, log in to your Facilitator site at http://qf.xorro.com. That’s where you will be creating activities, launching self-paced activities, setting up your LMS connectivity, organising participant groups, viewing results etc. You can also run live activities from your Facilitator site however there is an even better way: just download the optional Q-Launcher from the right hand side of your Facilitator site’s home page.

You’ll quickly become familiar with Xorro-Q through just using it. The following guides will help you with most initial questions you might have. If your question is not answered in the following articles, please search for an answer on Xorro’s on-line help pages (if you login on that page, you’ll get context-sensitive help too). If you have checked through these resources and still cannot find what you need, please send us a message!
