Getting Started with Poll Everywhere

Poll Everywhere is a stand alone web-based live interactive tool that help presenters engage with their audience. It is a response-based system that holds audience attention and promotes inclusive interaction for both presenters and audience members. Instructors can engage with their students while measuring their knowledge and noting their feedback in real time.
