Poll Everywhere is a web-based system that can be used both in and outside of the classroom to create multiple-choice or open-answer polls. Unlike other types of clicker systems, no special software or equipment is required. Using this technology with your classes allows you instant formative feedback to assess student understanding and increase engagement.
RWU has a site license for Poll Everywhere. If you would like to try this strategy out with your students just send an email to the ID team at: firstname.lastname@example.org and licensing info will be sent to you to get you started.
