Poll Everywhere

Poll Everywhere


Poll Everywhere is a BYOD (bring your own device) classroom response system that shows response results directly in the presentation slides.

It enables you to ask questions live and get answers from your students. The results are displayed graphically within your presentation software itself. Poll Everywhere works with PowerPoint (Mac/Win), Keynote (Mac) and Google Slides.

Your students can participate in polls with equipment that they have - mobile phones, tablets or laptops. Students can respond to your questions via the web or Poll Everywhere's mobile apps. You can see how Poll Everywhere works in the video below.



Ask a question

Use various question types to identify gaps in understanding, or kick off group discussions with a colourful word cloud.

Collect live responses

Invite your students to respond simultaneously online or via the Poll Everywhere response app.

See instant results

Responses appear in an animated graph or chart embedded in your presentation. Results update live for all to see.

Possible uses

  • Gauge student understanding of concepts, do just-in-time teaching to correct misperceptions.
  • Ask a question, get students to think-pair-share, ask the same question and see if results change.
  • Gather short answer responses from students and display them in a word cloud.
  • Get students to contribute ideas or ask questions, then get them to upvote/downvote to see which ideas they like or which questions need to be addressed most. Similarly, to solicit questions during Q&A sessions.
  • Ask students to respond to image-based questions. For example, identifying the correct area or location, useful in STEM subjects.
  • Conduct a short post-lesson survey to improve your teaching.
  • Collective decision-modeling or Choose Your Own Adventure type activities.
  • Embed a poll on a web page to view responses over time.
