Audience Response System Instructions

This year we will once again be using an online live polling system, otherwise known as an Audience Response System or ARS. During the lectures, questions will be asked that can be answered in real time by members of the audience and viewers of the live webcast. Webcast viewers should note that due to the nature of livestreaming, there is a delay of up to 10-15 seconds.

There are two ways to participate in this live polling; via a mobile device that’s capable of texting or a web browser.
