Integrate Polls Into Your Google Slides With Poll Everywhere
Poll Everywhere is a useful tool for creating interactive online polls for use in classes, presentations, or anywhere else where you want to get feedback from an audience. It allows you to create a wide range of types of polls and quizzes from multiple choice questions to clickable images that record where participants click on an image uploaded to the system. Poll Everywhere even offers options for brainstorming or collecting questions from your audience as you present. Though the tool offers a number of pricing plans specifically for educators, including a free option for use with up to 40 respondents, more advanced features do require a paid subscription. It is a great option for interactive polling that has been popular, particularly with educators, since its debut.
Recently, the tool became even more useful when it launched a Chrome extension that makes it quick and easy to integrate your quizzes and polls into your Google Slides. To take advantage of this new feature, all you need to do is create a quiz or poll in Poll Everywhere and install the Chrome extension. Once you have done that, poll responses can be integrated into a slide by simply choosing the Insert Image option in Google Slides and pasting the URL for the live results of your poll into the blank. The results will display in the slide and will update in realtime making it easy to show your audience the results as they are entered. Though Poll Everywhere has long been a nice tool, this feature makes it even more convenient to use. If you are looking to add interactivity to your classes and presentations, it is well worth a try. You can check this feature out in action in the video below and read more about the process on the Poll Everywhere blog.
