Poll Everywhere

Poll Everywhere helps to create an interactive classroom experience for your students through live online polling. Poll Everywhere can be used to gather feedback, as a participation activity, for knowledge checks, or as a fun engagement tool. Students can participate by scanning a QR code on their device, by going to a weblink, or by texting a code. 

Poll Everywhere has several key features to meet your polling needs: 

  • Launch a variety of poll "activity" types: Poll Everywhere has a variety of poll "activity" types available: word cloud, multiple choice question, open-ended question, clickable image question, ranking question, Q & A, survey, and competition.
  • Integrates with Canvas Gradebook: Poll Everywhere integrates with the Canvas gradebook by sharing grades for poll results.
  • Share poll responses in real-time:  Share responses immediately with students after they have participated. Real-time responses help to gain an understanding of knowledge within the class.
