Poll Everywhere for Students
Poll Everywhere is an online polling program that your instructor may use in class to take attendance, collect data, or check understanding of the current topic.
You will receive an email about registering after your instructor has set up Poll Everywhere in Blackboard. If you have already registered for Poll Everywhere for another course at UML, you will not receive another email to register and you will not need to register again. If you have not previously registered, it is extremely important that you do not skip over this email. If you don't complete the registration process, your answers will not be recorded in your instructor's grade report.
If your instructor is choosing only to use this as an engagement tool or to quickly check understanding in class, they may not require you to register because it will not be going to the Grade Center. If this is the case, you will not need to log in and you will not receive an email about registering. Your instructor will let you know if this is the case.
If your answers are not going through or you are repeatedly getting an error that you are not registered, you will need to make sure that you are logged in on the app or the website. Then, make sure that you are using "Eduroam" for your Wi-fi. If you are logged in and on Eduroam, you can also try going to Pollev.comand click forgot password. If none of these trouble shooting suggestions work, please email@example.com so we can help you figure out what is happening.
The image below is the first page you will see when go to the app or Pollev.com. This is where you will enter the name given on your instructor's presented question (i.e. ProfessorSmith1234).
