Poll Everywhere Rolls Out New Features for BTS

Poll Everywhere, which first appeared on EDge21 last year, uses mobile devices, the Web, and Twitter to create stylish real-time response experiences.

Poll Everywhere has been busy this summer integrating several new features that will be of special interest to educators:

  • Countdown timer - Let your students know exactly how much time they have to respond.
  • Anonymous polling - Run sensitive polls and rest easy that the responses stay fully anonymous.
  • Live word clouds - Display your students’ responses in a live word cloud that updates in real time. 
  • Organize your students - Group registered students into classes so you get a clear view of who's voting and how.
  • LMS integration - Manage rosters through your LMS (currently works with Canvas, more on the way).
  • New mystery poll type - Wow your class with a brand new poll type coming soon.
