A Cool Social Idea Space for your Students

Tricider is a great web tool that allows users to collect ideas, spark discussion and vote on any topic they want.I have covered several polling and survey tools before but this one in particular has so many distinctive features that make it stand out from the crowd.



Here is what you can do with Tricider :
  • Unlike common surveys, everyone can add ideas to a tricider question.
  • There is good and bad in every idea. All participants can add arguments to ideas and discuss them.
  • Participants finally vote for ideas and you agree on the best solution in no time.
  • Forbid adding new ideas, restrict number of votes, etc.: Advanced users can tailor the questions to their needs.
  • You decide who can see your question. Only invited participants can take part. No one has to register.
  • Let tricider keep you posted via e-mail if something exciting happens to your questions.
  • There is an extra spam protection for public questions. When activated, only authenticated users can participate.
  • Your not limited to words to describe your ideas. Use pictures and links to express yourself.
  • Set a clear deadline and ensure that your discussion comes to a good end.
  • If you have a general question, you can address the whole world! Publish your question in the Public IdeasSpace and let users from all over the world brainstorm with you!

  • If you create a question, you can edit and moderate it.
  • With one click, you can post your question to Twitter, Facebook, etc. Your participants will do the same and the question goes viral.
  • If you have a general question, you can address the whole world! Publish your question in the Public IdeasSpace and let users from all over the world brainstorm with you!
  • Every question can be embedded in a blog or website as a widget. It´s as easy as embedding a YouTube video.
  • Turn your question into an idea contest. Hand out your own products or use our Amazon voucher service. Awards are viral fuel for your question!
  • Your question renders beautifully on smartphones.
  • If you own a fan page, just add your question as a survey or contest to your page. Your fans will appreciate being involved.
