Poll Everywhere (Faculty) - Present Polls from PowerPoint or the Web

The following resources describe three options for presenting questions with Poll Everywhere.

Classroom Tips for PowerPoint Users:

  1. Consider using this handy template slide during your first session. You can modify it with your unique Poll Everywhere username and use the instructions in the Notes field to help students understand how to get started.
     
  2. Poll Everywhere runs as an application outside of PowerPoint. Until you've downloaded the Poll Everywhere application to your computer or device, you won't be able to integrate the activities into your PowerPoint as slides.
     
  3. When you get into the classroom, make sure you're logged into the Poll Everywhere PowerPoint add-in before you present. 

On a Windows computer:

1. Log in to Poll Everywhere by clicking the Poll Everywhere tab in your PowerPoint ribbon.

2. Then click the log in button.
