Type answer - Ask students to type a short answer

Use Type answer to eliminate the guesswork and test deeper knowledge. Learners are presented with an open-ended question and asked to type in a short answer (up to 20 characters). After all players have submitted their answer, the host can review and accept other submitted answers as correct so that they are awarded points.

Poll - Collect student feedback or do a quick pulse-check at any point during the class
