Poll Everywhere is an audience response system licensed by GW's School of Medicine & Health Sciences.
Poll Everywhere provides SMHS faculty with several interactive question types including multiple choice, word cloud, clickable image, and open-ended questions. Instructors can also employ Q&A, allowing users to submit questions, and Competition, in which participants compete to answer a series of questions the fastest.
Poll Everywhere allows students to respond to questions synchronously via an app or webpage, and also permits asynchronous responses.
