Used in company meeting and presentations as well as in higher education, Poll Everywhere is a simple tool for getting immediate responses for a live audience. This makes it a useful option if you’re hosting a synchronous lecture or seminar and want to get some anonymous feedback from your students to help you tweak your delivery as you go along.
You can get started with a free account at www.polleverywhere.com. This product is marked as ‘managed use’ in the EdTech Ecosystem document, so while the university doesn’t provide licences, staff can use it with students after consideration of GDPR and data security. If you have concerns, speak to your Associate Head of School for Student Experience or equivalent role.
