Inserting a website with Poll Everywhere for Mac

The Poll Everywhere presentation app lets you insert not only polls, but you can also embed live websites directly into your slide deck. This can be useful for displaying tutorial videos, live dashboards, streaming video chats, etc.

The following steps will get you presenting live pages quickly:

Step 1: Click the PollEv Presenter icon in the doc to bring the app to the forefront so the app name appear in the toolbar at the top of the screen.

Select PollEv Presenter image

Step 2: Select PollEv Presenter > Insert > Website...

Select website image

Step 3: Enter the address of the website you want to insert into your presentation and click the Insert button.

Paste the URL

Helpful tip: You’ll notice the LiveSlides logo rather than Poll Everywhere on the insert window and placeholder slide. Liveslides is a sister app, built by Poll Everywhere, which lets you embed any website seamlessly into PowerPoint and Keynote. The Poll Everywhere presentation app for MacOS comes with LiveSlides built in, so there’s no need to download a second app. You can still check out the site for more information on all the ways you can use this powerful tool.

A placeholder slide identifying the it as LiveSlides web content is inserted into the presentation slide deck. Unlike polls, the placeholder image is not a screenshot of the website to be presented. This placeholder slide still contains blue marks in the corners that tell the system where to display the website. You are now ready to present.

Important Note: As with activities, the notes section for the LiveSlides slide contains the title and a link to the website. These need to stay intact for the slide to function correctly. Do not delete it. You may add information to the notes below the link if needed.
