Poll Everywhere

Poll Everywhere is an alternative to iClicker and uses mobile devices (smart phones/tablets/laptops) to engage students in the classroom. It can provide real-time formative assessment. Use Poll Everywhere to take classroom attendance, conduct quizzes, and sync poll results with the Canvas gradebook. University accounts are available for faculty and staff.  Contact itt@usfca.edu to request an account or if you have any questions.

Once your account has been created, first-time users will need to create a password just for Poll Everywhere.  Follow the steps below:

  1. Go to PollEverywhere homepage and click LOGIN.
  2. To create your password, you will follow the same procedure as if you already had a password, and needed to reset it. So when you are on the login page, click the gray Forgot Your Password? link.
  3. Enter your full USF email address and click Reset password.
  4. Follow the instructions and you will be able to get a password that lets you login to Poll Everywhere. (Note: Students should use their usfca.edu email address, not dons.usfca.edu email address.)

Sign up for a Poll Everywhere training on the ETS training registration page in the Teaching and Learning section of the form.
