Poll Everywhere Pilot


Summary

Start Date: Sept 2017    Proposed End Date: May 2018
❱ Status: Pilot

A six-month pilot to explore the use of live polling using Poll Everywhere and how effective it is in engaging learners.

During the pilot period, members of staff who wish to be involved will be given full access to the range of features that Poll Everywhere includes. They will have a chance to test certain types of polls, see which types of polls work best for their courses and reflect upon the use of the tool.

The pilot will identify the need and use of the tool and an evaluation will be undertaken to understand the benefits of Poll Everywhere to staff and students across the university.
