Xorro-Q: Audience Engagement, Participation & Assessment

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 provides instant 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

To start using Xorro-Q you’ll need to sign up as a Free Facilitator.

You can join an existing institution account, or create a new one.  If you want to join an existing Institution account, there may be a delay while an Institution Manager approves your request. Who are the Institution Managers at my organisation?

By default, your account will be set up as a “Free Facilitator.” You’ll need a plan assigned if you want to work with groups of more than 30 participants, or if you need to ask more than 100 questions per month.  You can buy plans for your Institution, and then assign them to your Facilitator account.   Xorro-Q Licensing and Pricing Explained Facilitator Plans
