If integration with PowerPoint, Keynote, or Google Slides is required, the plugin can be downloaded here: https://www.polleverywhere.com

Poll everywhere general workflow:
Step 1. Login at https://www.polleverywhere.com
Step 2. Click Create or the + button from the left bar to start creating questions.
Tips: Newly created poll will be put under Ungrouped. You may want to group questions that belong to the same session so that the setting and report can be set and generated together.
Step 3 (if required). Import students as participants. This is if you want to track students and their responses.
You will be required to use Poll Everywhere excel template when importing your students. This excel has a first name and last name column. Since the class list from IVLE or LumiNUS does not separate students' names by first and last name, it is recommended that you put students' names in the first name columns and fill in their NUS userid in the last name column.
Step 4. Do either one of the following:
Option 1: Insert the poll into PowerPoint, Key note, or Google Slides and then run the slides. Make sure the plugin for the software has already been installed in the computer that you use to create and present the slides.
Example of how Poll Everywhere plugin appear in PowerPoint.
Option 2: Login to the site and click on the title of the first poll in your group and start presenting by clicking the full screen button. Click next to move on to the next poll.
Example of how to present the question from the web.
Each instructor will have an instructor code that is attached to a url that students can go to respond to the questions. The url to respond to the questions will be in the following format: https://pollev.com/instructorCode
Alternatively, students can install Poll Everywhere app and then enter the instructor code. The app can be found here: https://www.polleverywhere.com
