Poll Everywhere Pilot


PolleverywherelogoA 1-year pilot program has made Poll Everywhere available through single sign on at UCSF.  All faculty, staff, and students now have access to the web-based audience response system that supports interactive instruction and real-time student engagement.

Poll Everywhere is a web-based polling platform for audience participation which eliminates the need for physical clickers. Users create activities through a simple web interface and can embed them directly into PowerPoint or Keynote. The tool can be used in a classroom setting, events, conferences or for remote audience engagement. Students or audience members can vote on polls through a smartphone, tablet, computer, or text message. 

How is Poll Everywhere used on campus?

Poll Everywhere allows a presenter to ask audience members to respond to questions using a smart device or SMS texting, then displays the results live in a variety of formats, or embedded in a PowerPoint or Keynote Slides deck. This tool has been used to:

  • Create live polls and quizzes in classes
  • Check attendance in classes
  • Collect anonymous responses to questions about sensitive topics
  • Create icebreaker questions at conferences
  • Engage remote students
