Poll Everywhere

Welcome to the resource page for Poll Everywhere, Marian's audience polling tool.

What is Poll Everywhere?

Poll Everywhere is a program that allows instructors to poll and record participants' input using various methods. While PollEverywhere has a free account, Marian faculty can also request to be added to Marian's license to access the complete set of features and increased audience numbers. To submit that request email Blake using the contact info on the right.

Question Types

Choose from a large variety of poll activities, including multiple-choice, open response, live word clouds, clickable images, up- and down-voting for Q&A, and rank order. Questions can be written in almost any language and can include images, LaTeX syntax (for formulas), and emojis.

Participant Responses

Participants can respond using any device. They can go to a customizable web address or send a text message to participate. As the presenter, you control when responses are displayed on-screen. Poll Everywhere supports international use with response instructions in 30 languages, along with international texting numbers.

Viewing the Results

Customize the look and feel of the live chart with color, font, and image options. You can display live results from any web browser, or embed the live chart in your PowerPoint, Keynote, or Google Slides deck.

Saving the Results
