Poll Everywhere allows you to answer questions in class, vote on polls and automatically get feedback on those questions using your own device.
To vote, you have two main options: by opening the poll in a web enabled device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.), or texting your answer to a phone number. Instructions to both are given below the question and the options have a key number you use to vote by text.
If you’re voting by connecting to the web and are on campus, Eduroam is free for you to connect. If you’re voting by texting, it will be the price of a text message, or free if you have a message package. If you are participating in a Poll Everywhere activity at home, we recommend that you connect to your WiFi to complete the activity.
Studies have shown that using student response systems like Poll Everywhere in class can help you test your understanding and overcome barriers to it, retain information better and understand it more deeply.
