Embedding Poll Everywhere Activities in Quercus

You may know about Poll Everywhere and its simple integration into Powerpoint and Google Slides. Poll Everywhere activities can also be embedded directly into Quercus pages. This can be useful for polling students at the end of a sequence of asynchronous content. What concepts did they find most difficult? Which mode of delivery did they prefer? This is a quick and effective way to gather student feedback. There is a wide variety of poll types to choose from and you have the option of displaying or hiding results. Click here to see how this works.
