Create a poll

What is it?

Using polls in Collaborate is a good way to engage your students by inviting them to participate, asking them a question or asking for their opinion on something.

What does it do?

You can set up your poll preference within Collaborate and students will be able to interact with it and you can see the results in real-time.

  • Set your poll preference
  • Ask questions
  • Invite your students to participate
  • View results in real-time

What should I know?

Step 3: Select wither Multiple Choice or Yes/No Choices as your polling preference and type your questions.

Note: You cannot prepare your questions early. We recommend having a Word document prepared that has your questions and answers so you can copy and paste the text into the boxes.

Step 4: When you are ready, select Start
