If you are interested in a tool that can allow you to receive immediate (and potentially anonymous) feedback from your students this fall, you might benefit from using “Poll Everywhere.” Poll Everywhere allows students to text answers from their mobile phones or submit answers via the Poll Everywhere website (for free) to prompts that you create. Though there is an app available, neither you or your students need to download an app to use Poll Everywhere.
In the video below, Juk Bhattacaryya (a UW-Whitewater faculty member who piloted the use of Poll Everywhere in Spring 2018) discusses using Poll Everywhere.
If you think you might be interested in using Poll Everywhere, consider attending one of the LTC’s “Using Poll Everywhere to Engage Students” sessions to learn more. Attending one of these sessions will provide you with more information on Poll Everywhere, and help get you started with your own account.
The dates/times for upcoming “Using Poll Everywhere to Engage Students” sessions are below (just click on the session to sign up; you will need to log in to register):
If you have any questions about these sessions, please contact the UW-W Learning Technology Center.
