I found Baloonr invaluable for getting me to insights I have never received in teaching this course 6 times. Before launching on Baloonr, I facilitated a session (asking questions and show of hands) and missed the things that surfaced on Baloonr.
Baloonr was at the center of a better and more innovative student course experience. Students produced more ideas, we captured and managed those ideas more easily and students felt more bought into the process of proposing and selecting projects.
Baloonr helps to "level the playing field" and gives everyone an opportunity to voice their feelings and opinions. With Baloonr, we’ve been able to come to consensus on departmental issues without needing to call another meeting. In fact, I cancelled the last one...
Start a baloonr for a question, a topic, a project, or anything.
Invite any group of any size to participate. That invited group goes through an anonymous, bias-free process that is ridiculously efficient.
Real-time, anonymous collaboration means that you get the information that you can’t get any other way. No pleasantries wasting time and no identities holding people back or influencing discussions.
Baloonr removes all bias from voting. You don’t know how others are leaning, and you don’t know whose information you are reviewing. Groups are able to identify priorities, reach decisions, and define solutions in the most fair, efficient, and accurate way.
Optionally remove anonymity at the end of a baloonr and link any piece of your information or feedback with your name. It’s up to you - you can always remain anonymous on Baloonr.
