Poll Everywhere overview

What is Poll Everywhere?

Poll Everywhere is an easy-to-use online tool that allows users to gather feedback and other data from their audience in various situations. With the ability to create custom polls and surveys, which can be answered by the audience via text messages, web or even Twitter, Poll Everywhere facilitates audience engagement and participation.

The Poll Everywhere platform offers a range of tools for audience and learning engagement including reporting on gathered data, moderation of displayed content, automatic grading of learning activities, team collaboration for creating presentations, participant registration, audience segmentation, LMS integration, competitions, and a branded response page.

Poll Everywhere allows users to see the results of polls and surveys compiled and presented as graphs in real-time. Moreover, the user can get an overview of response history, and high impact visuals allow them to understand engagement and data on a deeper level.

Participants can easily keep up with current questions as the app automatically updates when the presenter starts a new activity. With the premium moderation feature, users can control the responses that are to be displayed on screen, along with the time at which the responses should be displayed.

Poll Everywhere Review

Used occasionally for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-11-19
Review Source: Capterra

I have utilized this software in my work life when doing presentations with college students. It was a great way to engage the audience and allowed for better presentations and engagement from students! We saw an increase in participation during our presentations after utilizing the software. I would recommend the software for anyone who wants an easy to use polling software!

Pros
Poll Everywhere is great because it is so easy, quick, and efficient. It is a great technology for multiple purposes, such as classrooms, presentations, or events. It makes asking questions fun, engaging, and simple!

Cons
There is nothing negative about this software. It is very easy to use that anyone can pick it up and implement it for their needs. The technology is simple but effective and the interface is very appealing!

Comprehensive instant audience response tool

Used monthly for 2+ years

We use PollEverywhere in many adult teaching and training sessions to increase active engagement in the audience. We train our teachers and trainers to use it and, as non-experts, they find it is simple to get on board with and find it really works to break up long sessions and give audiences a simple and effective means of instant interaction.

Pros
PollEverywhere is a fantastic tool for injecting engagement into any presentation or teaching session. It is an easy-to-use interface and has a variety of question types to cater for many forms of response, including image-based ones. The fact that it has free-text responses enables a rich response gathering from audiences and display to the audience. The new points-based quiz feature and the home-work feature are welcome to helo expand its application to a wide range of uses. The fact that it has a free plan is extremely helpful in the not-for-profit sector.

Cons
Many users would like seamless integration into PowerPoint and Keynote but this is only possible through installing software on the machine and this is not possible for our users at an institutional set-up. It would be good if a workaround was offered that didn't depend on installing local software client. Also, the paid-for plans are relatively expensive, certainly prohibitively so for smaller groups and not-for-profit.

Easy Polls to Share

I use Poll Everywhere to quickly get questions answered, to brainstorm ideas, and to engage my audience for presentations whether it is at a staff meeting or for my students. It has been useful and engaging.

Pros
I like that the polls are easy to access and can be displayed in multiple ways - whether it's a graph or a word bank. You can simply make your poll live and then share the link during a presentation so people can answer the questions and see what the results are instantly! It is easy for both children and adults to use for meetings or in the classroom.

Cons
I think the homepage/ website where you create the poll could be more visually appealing. It just does not look very modern.

Great for polling large audiences, but lacks an intuitive design.

Pros
The price is the biggest pro in our mind. The software package is inexpensive to begin with, and they allow for organization-wide use under one account, so everyone can have their own username profile. Beyond the price, the ability to allow respondents to text in their poll choices is really fantastic. Users don't need anything other than a web-enabled device or cell phone to take part in the polls. This makes it very easy to get responses from an audience that may be a mix of novice and experienced tech users. The types of questions you can choose from (multiple choice, free text, etc.) is pretty standard, but the way you can view the responses is really impressive. For example, you can make real-time word clouds from the audiences responses (and, yes, you can filter our swear words!).

Cons
We've found that the program itself lacks quite a bit of intuitive design (you really have to hunt around for the features to edit your polls) and the functionality is quite limited.
