Poll Everywhere is an online student response system that can be used for polls during a lecture and can be integrated directly into a PowerPoint or Keynote presentation. Using Poll Everywhere gives the teacher an immediate insight into the knowledge of the students on the subject presented in the lecture. It can also be used to encourage student engagement and peer to peer discussion redefining the lecture as more than just teacher to student communication.
Poll Everywhere holds different types of question, among others Multiple Choice Questions, Ranking, Open-ended and Q&A’s which allows for a variety of usage during the lecture.
