Poll Everywhere is a web and mobile student response system. During class, instructors can display a Poll Everywhere activity on-screen and students respond with their phones. Results appear live on-screen for the class to discuss or for the instructor to grade. Instructors can use PollEverywhere to take attendance, give quizzes in class, find out how well the class has understood a lesson, and generally make learning more active.


To request access to Poll Everywhere, please contact Instructional Technology or call 509-359-6656.


While Poll Everywhere has Canvas integration to import class rosters and export gradebook reports, it does not have a built-in method to embed activities within Canvas. It is possible, however, to use the Module tool in Canvas to insert the activity’s webpage instead of the embed code. The steps in this guide will walk you through the process.
