Accessing Poll Everywhere via Blackboard 

Important Note

Poll Everywhere is a stand alone  web-based response tool like Point Solutions (formerly known as Turning Point) and is not a Blackboard tool.  Therefore, to synch your course roster and push results from Poll Everywhere activities into  Blackboard grade book, you must access the Poll Everywhere link via Blackboard as shown below.


Step 1

To access the Poll Everywhere link on Blackboard, log in to Blackboard and you will see the Poll Everywhere link under Course Content within the Content section.

When you are back on your Course Content page you will see the Poll Everywhere link situated there.  If you have multiple courses and would like to use Poll Everywhere for each of them, this series of action is required for each course.
