Embed an activity in Canvas

While Poll Everywhere has Canvas integration to import your class rosters and export your Gradebook reports, it does not have a built-in method to embed polls within Canvas. However, some instructors use the Module tool in Canvas to insert the poll's webpage instead of the poll's embed code. If you would like to post the poll's results display, you can do the following:

  1. Click the title of the poll you want to embed

  2. Click the Present tab to the top right

  3. Click Share to see options for sharing a poll on the web. You use the "Live Results Link" to display the poll results in Canvas. Or, use the "Shareable Response Link" to allow students to respond from Canvas.
