AnswerGarden is a website that is intended to allow users to get feedback to a question.  It is very simple to use and requires no sign up.  You enter in a question (limited to about 60 characters) and then select some of your options (unlimited answers, password protection, reminder email) and then click create. 

Once you have done that you will get an embed code that you can add to a website or blog and visitors will get to respond with simple 20 character answers.  You can also share the question on various social networks as well, so it might be a great communication tool for a district/classroom Facebook or Twitter page.Currently in beta is a customization tool which allows you to change the colors for background and text, borders, and size.  When you start to get responses, you can export them and have data about the answers to your question. 

You can see a sample below:

With more and more students creating web pages and online publications, AnswerGarden can provide students an opportunity to get quick and instant feedback.  It might also be a way for teachers to quickly communicate with students their opinions on their publications.  It would also be a very useful tool for students to discuss other students work as well, while working on their vocabulary since it is limited to 20 characters.  


  1. My students love embedding this one on their blogs, anything to gather feedback from others is a big hit!

  2. As a principal, I use AnswerGarden to collaborate and solicit feedback from faculty and staff on any number of different things. Even those who shy away from tech tools can use it easily and effectively.
