Poll Everywhere

poll-everywhere

Poll Everywhere is a great way to create quick anonymous questions for your class using real-time data collection. This tool allows for an individual to create a poll without purchasing any additional equipment aside from what they already may have access to use.

Essentials

  • A recent computer – A computer purchased within the past 5 years should be suitable.
  • A high speed Internet connection – This process will not work on dial-up Internet.
  • Adobe Flash Player – If you do not have this installed, please download it at http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/.  Adobe Flash Player is available for all web browsers on Windows (XP, 7, 8), Mac OS (10.6, 10.7, 10.8), and Linux (varies).
  • Optional items
    • A cell phone with a texting plan
    • A Twitter account
