Add Interactive Activities With Ease

On-screen instructions make it simple to create activity slides and add them to your presentation.

Foster Critical Thinking with Innovative Question Types

LectureTools makes it easy to promote critical thinking in students with several question types. Keep things simple with traditional multiple choice, or ask students for more open-ended responses.

Multiple Choice Questions

Pose multiple choice or true/false questions with ease. Select a correct answer to grade the question for correctness, or present the question as an opinion poll.

Ordered List Activities
