Poll Everywhere

1 September, 2020

Centre for Learning and Teaching

Looking for a way to get your students to engage in Zoom? Looking for more sophisticated poll offerings? Have you thought about using Poll Everywhere? ANU has an institutional license with an easy sign-up option using your email account. Poll Everywhere enables you to create word clouds, clickable images, Q&As, open-ended questions, multiple-choice polls, rank order responses and surveys. It provides multiple response options for students. Embedding your polls within PowerPoint is also possible!   

For maths or science academics or anyone needing to use equations and formulas, Poll Everywhere has flexibility for LaTeX too (see below) or read this article about how to use it.

The Teaching Remotely Wattle site has a basic downloadable guide to get you started in the Further Resources section. In coming weeks we’ll provide you with more info about how you can use Poll Everywhere for remote or face-to-face teaching. Please get in touch with the Education Design Team in CLT if you’ve been using Poll Everywhere and are happy to share experiences. We’d love to write up your case stories to inspire others! Email us via with your experiences.
