Poll Everywhere

Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence

Poll Everywhere is a free interactive tool for gaining feedback from students or meeting participants. You can also pay to upgrade your account for additional features. The Higher-Ed free account allows for up to 40 responses per poll. This is more than enough for most classes at Saint Leo. One great use of Poll Everywhere is creating a survey for Mid-Term Course Feedback. Surveys allow you to ask your participants multiple questions at once. Everyone can answer the questions privately at their own pace. They can be activated and displayed on your pollev.com response page, shared with a dedicated link, or even used during a presentation.

Information for Participants

Open or type in the link given to you by the instructor/presenter and begin the poll.  You can use your computer or mobile device to participate.
