Today’s resource post is a technology resource and one that could be quite helpful in your next presentation!
Poll Everywhere is a tool that could enable an audience to engage with questions you pose as you present. You can embed poll questions right within your slides and participants can answer using their mobile devices, computers or even answer via Twitter. I’ve enjoyed the “real time” updates Poll Everywhere can gives when certain topics may lend well to audience interaction.
Here’s the basic info on how it works: https://www.polleverywhere.com/how-it-works
The free version is available for any polling that you’d like to do that has less than 30 responses. For larger audiences, Student Affairs has purchased an “instructor license” for use of the tool which enables you to have up to 400 responses per online poll. For log-in information, please contact Ed Cabellon or Maureen Johnson in the Student Affairs office.
