Poll Everywhere is now available

UCSF now provides a campus-wide license for Poll Everywhere. All faculty, staff and students have access to the web-based audience response system that supports interactive instruction and real-time student engagement.

How Does It Work?

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.

What can you do with Poll everywhere?

  • Help assess student understanding of class material
  • Conduct a short quiz
  • Use anonymity during discussions
  • Create word clouds that weight audience responses
  • Check attendance
