Poll Everywhere is an online tool for audience response. It allows you to gather live responses from participants in any venue such as conferences, classrooms, or any off-site events with an internet connection. Polls can be embedded in PowerPoint or Google Slides presentation and can be taken with any common devices like mobile phones, tablets, or laptops.
To gain access, please follow these steps:
For UTHealth Faculty that need access to host polls please make the request to the Learning Advisory Team member of your primary appointed school: https://www.uth.edu/canvas/lms-advisory-team.htm
- Please e-mail GSBS at firstname.lastname@example.org, and include your name and UTHealth or MD Anderson e-mail address in the request for access. (Note: If you previously signed up for a Poll Everywhere account, using your UTHealth or MD Anderson e-mail, you will be prompted to sign in with your schools credentials from then on, instead of the password you used before to access your account.)
- After we receive this information, we will authorize your access to Poll Everywhere. Once authorization is complete you will receive a Welcome e-mail from Poll Everywhere. In the e-mail you will click "Confirm and Get Started".
- Then, you will have access to Poll Everywhere and the tools it provides to gain feedback from your students or audience.
