Poll Everywhere is a free site that is easy to use. It allows live, real-time, animated charts updated on responses right into a PowerPoint. It works on every device, like cellphones, smartphones, laptops, and tablets.
Get Your Class' Attention Immediately, and Easily
You can set up Poll Everywhere in less than an hour; and get your students' attention instantly.
Instructors prefer Poll Everywhere because:
- There's no clunky hardware to set up or pair.
- Saves their students money.
- Eliminates "pocket clicking" from absent students.
- New features ship nearly every week.
- It works on any web or mobile device. Stop worrying about software upgrades.
- Instead of texting or being distracted on their laptop, students follow along with you.
Students prefer Poll Everywhere because:
- They can have a voice. Some instructors poll the class to find out what section to cover next; to vote on a movie to see, or just to give the shy student a chance to earn participation points.
- Their responses can be reviewed later.
- There is no need to replace batteries or buy a separate device. Clickers usually cost $35-$50 at the campus bookstore; easily the cost of one month of a smartphone data plan
- Never forgotten: students also have a much greater likelihood to attend class and to remember to bring their phone/laptop with them.
