Poll Everywhere is a dynamic online polling platform that allows participants to respond in real time to presenter-generated questions. 

Faculty members and instructors can use Poll Everywhere to gather live student feedback during classes via surveys, polls, and discussion boards. Participants can respond via the web, text messaging, and apps for iOS and Android mobile devices.

Poll Everywhere can also be used outside of Canvas to create standalone polls and activities for collecting feedback and input.

How to obtain


Creating activities using Poll Everywhere requires a Presenters license. Request a Presenters license: polleverywhere@mit.edu.


Poll Everywhere is available as a module for all courses in MIT’s Canvas learning management system, or directly via Touchstone, at polleverywhere.com.
