Poll Everywhere

pollev.pngPoll Everywhere is a simple application that works well for live audiences using mobile devices such as cell phones. People participate by visiting a fast, mobile-friendly web page for your event or sending text messages. Instructions are displayed on-screen. The poll that is embedded within the presentation or web page will update in real-time. Advanced uses include texting comments to a presentation, texting questions to a presenter, responding via the web, and SMS interactivity in print, radio, and TV.

The HSC has a site-wide license that can be used in the classroom. Please contact us if you would like to use Poll Everywhere, and our office can create an account for you.
