How is Ziplet different from Google and Microsoft forms?
Ziplet is designed for easy daily student check ins.
Whilst traditional surveys take time to set up and send, whilst also not allowing teachers to reply directly to their students, Ziplet is designed to ask a question in under 30 seconds and gives teachers the ability to follow up with students one-on-one or as a group.
With Ziplet teachers can also ask questions that let students reply anonymously without losing the ability to send a follow up message. Ideal for questions related to social and emotional learning or well-being.
One of the unique features is the ability to reply or react to student responses, letting students know you are listening.
Ziplet even provides time saving features, like template questions, repeating questions, group messaging, announcements, quick responses and more.
How long does it take to setup my Ziplet account?
Registering for an account takes less than two minutes.
