How do student access my polls?
Each presenter account has an Activity response URL that is unique to their account. You can find your URL by going to your Poll Everywhere account. Once there, in the main Home area, you will see the Activity response URL shown in the middle of the page. It will begin with PollEv.com/ and something related to your name will be after. Example: PollEv.com/jdoe512
If you would like to customize this URL, you can follow the directions on the Poll Everywhere site.
If you are using PowerPoint and embed the questions in the presentation, the Activity response URL for your account will be shown at the top of the slide for the students.
