students study in library

Just in time for fall – the Back to School 2018 Webinar is being led by Poll Everywhere’s very own customer support specialist Tim Sherrill. This one will offer insights for both experienced users and for instructors just starting to use Poll Everywhere as a classroom response system.

It happens Wednesday, Aug 15, 2018, from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM PDT.

You can sign up now.


Here’s what we’ll cover…

Poll Everywhere essentials

1. How to present learning activities seamlessly in presentation slides

All you need is a free add-in and a few minutes to start adding Poll Everywhere activities as slides –whether you use PowerPoint, Google Slides, or Keynote. Tim walks you through the steps.

2. What you can do with an iOS or Android device

You can use a phone, iPad or Android device to manage polls and activities in class. It’s an easy way to access controls like the moderation bar, lock, and show/hide response chart.

3. How to select the right type of student registration

Poll Everywhere gives you the option to formally register students as participants (especially helpful for recording class participation and graded responses). But you can also choose to allow guest participation, or to make certain questions completely anonymous. You’ll also learn how to make activities accessible to SMS text message responses, useful in lecture halls where spotty wifi is an issue.
