    Browse to Participant List (.QPL file): Identifies students by name as defined in Qwizdom class list (.qpl).
    Anonymous: Identifies users by a randomly assigned Participant ID number, allowing responses to be anonymous.
    Self Forming (Requires User ID Login): Identifies user by an assigned Participant ID number, for instance an employee or student number. Participant remotes will prompt users to enter a User ID, often twice to confirm. Reports will tally results based on the Participant ID numbers.

Device Settings tab:


These settings determine how participants may join and interact during a session using a personal device. Participants may collaborate, annotate, take notes, answer questions, request help, and more, depending on the device, application, and license.

Consumer Devices refers to any Wi-Fi enabled device that participants may use to join a session, including laptop, tablet, computer, or smart-phone. An additional license (by presenter or participant) may be required in order to join a session.

  • Local Communication: allows users to connect to the session by IP address. All users must be on the same network as the presenter, but no internet access is required. (See Presenting with Collaboration)
