Poll Everywhere is a web-based audience response system that lets presenters embed activities directly into their presentations. Using a variety of activity types, you can turn a series of slides into an effective, interactive experience. It can also be used as a standalone polling platform that allows students to vote on custom teacher-generated polls via smartphone or computer.

Lehigh has a limited site-wide license for Poll Everywhere for academic uses (faculty & students only). Please submit a ticket if you would like to be invited.
