Classroom Polling

Polling allows instructors to quickly ask a question and instantly receive responses from each student during class. Polling is used in class while presenting course material to get immediate feedback from students.

Polling may be either:

  • conventional with student using purchased clickers remotes and the instructor using software to collect and display the responses
  • mobile/web, which uses online software or mobile app with your students’ web-enabled device (e.g. a cell phone, smart phone, iPad, tablet or laptop).
