What is Poll Everywhere?

Poll Everywhere makes events more fun, productive, and engaging by collecting questions and feedback from audiences in real-time with inexpensive mobile and web technology. The audience's responses are displayed instantly in the presenter's PowerPoint presentation or web browser closing the gap between presenter and audience.

How does Poll Everywhere work?

Poll Everywhere replaces audience hardware systems with off-the-shelf mobile and web technology. By relying on text messaging (SMS) and the web, audiences respond with their cell phones, BlackBerrys, iPhones, laptops, desktops, or any other web-enabled device.

The audience's feedback is then shown in real-time in the presenter's PowerPoint slides or web browser.
