For my first Wednesday spotlight, I wanted to showcase a tool I personally use in my teaching and presentations, Poll Everywhere. Poll Everywhere allows individuals to create quick polls, quizzes, and interactive message boards that can be integrated into presentation software for gathering feedback on the fly. Individuals can access and answer the polls via a website on any device with a browser, or use SMS texting. If you’re looking for a way to bring interactive elements to your classroom or next talk, give Poll Everywhere a look. They have a number of pricing options ranging from free to paid based on your audience size and the features you need. Check out their video overview below.
This is a post from my ongoing effort every Wednesday to highlight apps, web services, and vendors that may be of interest to higher education and student affairs professionals. I do not work for these companies, nor do I always endorse them, per se, but am sharing them to highlight tools that others may find useful. Have an example to share? Tweet me.
