Your students can respond using whatever device they own. That includes smartphones, tablets, laptops, and even "dumbphones" with text messaging.
Setting up clickers has never been called "easy" but Poll Everywhere makes it dead simple to add exciting, real time polls to your lecture. Even grading and attendance is a snap.
Poll Everywhere is 1/10 the cost of clickers. We are the best value among BYOD systems because we’re the largest. Heck, stay on our free plan as long as you want!
Instructors have used Poll Everywhere in a huge variety of ways – many of which have been found to support student achievement objectives. In small classes and large, let your creativity run wild – and see your students delight.
I've used Poll Everywhere in both large lectures and small discussions, and the mix of peer and technological interaction
never fails to engage, and excite, my students.
I love to use Poll Everywhere with my students. You can use it to review before a test, or in the middle of a lecture to see if they are getting the point, or to gather some quick data to run calculations.
It is very versatile!
