Poll Everywhere uses standard web technology to gather live responses. This technology, which works through texting and the web, offers a cost-effective polling option for use with your academic classes. UNI has a site-wide license for academic classes that allows for more advanced features than the "free" version of Poll Everywhere.

"I adopted Poll Everywhere about 4 years ago to help students engage more fully during class. I had used i-clickers before but always dealt with students forgetting their device or giving their device to a friend. Poll Everywhere can be used with any device -- laptop, tablet or phone. A student only needs a basic cell phone in order to participate. The questions I use help provide feedback to me to see what concepts the students might not clearly understand. I give the students a score for the semester based on not only participation but correct answers. Bonus points are awarded for a higher percentage of participation. Besides questions over content, I use the anonymous questions for various survey items to get feedback on projects, etc." - Amy Igou, UNI Faculty Member
