Poll Everywhere


What is Poll Everywhere?

Poll Everywhere is a web-based audience response system (ARS) that allows participants to respond to polls and surveys using their own internet-enabled devices (phones, laptops, and tablets).

Poll Everywhere is DGSOM's primary polling/audience response tool and it has been used in a variety of presentation situations (e.g., lectures, labs, conferences).

Access type:

  • On-Demand; App download
  • Fully subsidized by DGIT
  • Self-Service

Responding to questions/polls

During class, an instructor will display a Poll Everywhere activity on-screen.

The visualization will display a web address that looks like PollEv.com/dgsomB1.

From your phone, laptop, or tablet you'll enter the web address and be taken to a screen that allows you to respond to the activity.

Responding via the mobile app (optional)

Registering an account

Most polls may not require a registered account to participate. However, some instructors may require that you participate using a registered account so they can evaluate your responses during and after class.
