Some tools are just too cool and easy, they don't need much training on. I like those tools, especially when they can be SOOOOOO helpful. Tricider is one of those cool tools. Even better than being free (which it is) is that you don't even need to register an account.
To create the embedded question below, all I did was go to www.tricider.com, type a question and click the Go button. Next, I clicked the link at the bottom to Embed in a blog or website. I copied the html code and pasted it into this blog post.
OMG, could it be any easier?! Now I can just sit back and wait for the options to come rolling in. I could have easily changed the deadline, shared via email, subscribe to updates, etc. all options available at a simple click of the mouse.
So how can I use this in training? It's great for assessments and querying knowledge. You can use it to help structure discussions and feedback on the course's topics. If you want to create a training course, but not sure what areas need the most training, use Tricider. I'm just beginning to figure out how I will use it. Please share your ideas in the comments of this blog. I'd love to hear from you.
