Importing students from Sakai
Instructors can import their course rosters from their school’s LMS into Poll Everywhere. This automatically registers each student as a Poll Everywhere participant. Registering students with Poll Everywhere lets educators easily identify how students responded to their polls.
Follow the steps below to import students from Sakai:
Step 1: In Sakai, navigate to the course you would like to use with Poll Everywhere.
Step 2: Click Site Info and select the Manage Tools tab.
Step 3: Add the Poll Everywhere Porter from the Plugin List then click Continue on this and the next two pages.
Step 4: Click the Site Info button again and select the Tool Order tab.
Step 5: Click the gear icon next to the Poll Everywhere Porter tool, select Make Tool Invisible to Students from the drop down menu, then click the Save button.
Step 6: Click the Poll Everywhere link in the course to open the Poll Everywhere tool. On the LMS Import/Export page, click the red Import Roster button and Poll Everywhere will import the student roster for the selected Moodle course.
When this is done, a new Poll Everywhere account will be created for each student who did not already have one. Students will automatically receive a notification email with a link to change their password. You can edit and manage the imported students at https://www.polleverywhere.com/participants.
