Uses for Live Polls
Live polls can jazz up any environment. They’re super simple and super versatile tools that give crowds at webinars, schools, team meetings and more a chance to share their thoughts and have a blast.
Meetings can get as cold as an iceberg sometimes, with staff sitting silently, not willing to answer your questions. A live poll can smash that ice and be the start of a wonderful atmosphere in your offline, online or remote meeting.
You'll never know what's going on in your employees' minds until you ask them. Send out a poll as part of a survey to get easy, valuable feedback that you can act on.
Get students pumped
Live polls are the perfect antidote to sluggish, disinterested classes. Students join on their phones and get interactive in seconds.
Test your students' understanding of what you've just taught. You can even mark some answers in your poll as 'correct'.
Poll your people
Bring religious services, cook-offs, tournaments and street parties to life with those in your circle. Use a poll to gather opinions and lead the community in the right direction.
What to do?
Whether it's choosing what Netflix film to watch together, or the next location for a family outing, polling is an ideal solution to make the decision quickly and save time for everyone.
