This story will outline the main takeaways from James’ presentation, however you can watch his brilliant webinar in full, below!
Vevox allows users to clearly communicate their thoughts and feelings on the current scenarios – while also reflecting on what others think too.
How does James use Vevox?
The use of Vevox allows the stories and scenarios to go in various directions, providing the users with multiple options to each question. This is really helpful for clinical decision making when looking at cause and effect.
It allows moments during sessions for participants to take a minute to be quiet, pause and commit their feelings through a Vevox free text poll – Vevox allows users to clearly communicate their thoughts and feelings on the current scenarios – while also reflecting on what others think too.
Moments for behaviour analysis
The audience are able to observe an action and consequently respond with what they see and what is going on – this is really useful for diagnostic purposes or assessment.
Through Vevox, participants are also able to see whether their assumptions and readings of peoples behaviour is the same as everybody else – this is great as everyone’s response are visible, meaning you’re able to see how people have perceived exactly the same observable scenario.
Capturing in-the-moment feelings
The emotions felt by those observing various scenarios are very real and the ability for responses to be anonymous through Vevox is great – when responses are shared it’s really interesting to see how people’s feelings on the scenario can differ so much.
