Poll Everywhere is Yale's supported system for in-class polling. Using a cloud based "bring your own device" model for polling, Poll Everywhere allows the flexibility to be used in an online course context as well as in person. Pol Everywhere provides an expanded list of question types vs. Zoom polling including short answer, clickable imagine, ranking and others. Polling allows you to get real-time formative feedback from students. This feedback can be used to gauge student understanding of concepts, and allow for new strategies in engaging students in higher order thinking. In addition to live polling, static links can be generated for Poll Everywhere questions, which can be used to ask a question via a poll in an asynchronous context via email, posting on Canvas, or other communication medium.
