From ARSnova to Particify

The new ARSnova from Particify

Since the beginning of 2020, a new, completely revised ARSnova version has been offered by Particify—a company formed out of the ARSnova project. Particify continues the further development of the open source software, operates a new online service and provide services for institutions. The arsnova.eu online service will be discontinued but it is still possible to export data from the old version.

Moving existing ARSnova sessions

You can transfer your sessions you have created at arsnova.eu in just a few steps.

  1. To do this, you must first create an export token that you can use to identify yourself to Particify as the session owner. Click on the “Export sessions” button in the arsnova.eu session list and then select “Particify” as the export destination. If you do not see the button, your browser has not updated the app yet. In this case you can force the update

    Choose Particify as target in the export dialog.

    Now you can generate the token with a click on the corresponding button. Copy this token before moving to the next step.

  2. Now first create a new account via the Particify registration page, if you have not already done so. Then you can import your sessions (in Particify: “rooms”) into the online service. To do this, switch to the import page, which you can reach from the room list page (“My rooms”) by clicking the “Import from arsnova.eu” button. If you have already created rooms, you will find the function in the “...” menu in the search bar instead. After you have entered the token on the import page, the list of your arsnova.eu sessions will be retrieved. You can now select which ones you want to transfer and start the import.

    After the token has been entered, the sessions can be imported.

ARSnova-related projects at THM

The further development of the software and the new online service for the audience response system ARSnova are now operated by Particify. However, this has no influence on the other apps of the ARSnova project group at the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen – University of Applied Sciences (e.g. “arsnova.cards” or “frag.jetzt”). These will continue—under the direction of Professor Dr. Quibeldey-Cirkel—in the university environment.
