Creating a CCCU Mentimeter Account

The University has an institutional licence for Mentimeter which allows all staff and students to create an institutional account with their CCCU email address, username, and password. Accounts created in this way allow users to access all free and premium content! Make sure to create your account by following the guidance below  to see how to create an account in this way (page 1) rather than creating one of their standard accounts which are very limiting and do not contain all available features, and what to do if you need to copy Mentimeter questions / presentations created from an earlier personal account into your CCCU one (page 2).

Important Note: Once your account has been created, do not change your email address away from your CCCU account. This may break your account and result in lost Mentimeter questions / presentations that may become unrecoverable.

Mentimeter is a web-based classroom response system (CRS) which allows you to create questions in advance. These questions can then be displayed on the main screen to your learners in a session. Learners respond anonymously by entering an 8-digit code into a simple web site on their phone or any internet-connected device.  Mentimeter then collates learners’ responses which you can choose to show on the main screen.  

Important Note: For General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) purposes, Mentimeter cannot be used to collect identifiable personal or demographic information about your audience, please refer to the University’s Mentimeter Usage Policy.
