Poll Everywhere is an audience response system that allows faculty to collect immediate feedback from students in the classroom. There is no longer a need for expensive clickers.
Students can provide realtime feedback using their own personal device. Poll Everywhere is free to both faculty and students. Free accounts allow for the collection of up to 40 responses per poll. If you have a larger group with more than 40 respondents, please contact Training & Instructional Support for assistance.
What is Poll Everywhere?
Poll Everywhere says the "great thing" about its service is educators "can engage your classroom or meeting without any clunky and easy-to-forget hardware — and with a device you can be certain most everyone has on them at all times — a mobile phone! You’ll be asking your students to use their phones, tablets, or laptops to respond to polls that you present. The results appear live on the display. You can use this tool to quiz your class, discuss the results, and use that insight to guide the classroom discussion or curriculum as you move forward through your presentation."
