ParticiPoll free audience polling for PowerPoint

ParticiPoll free audience polling for PowerPoint | technologies | Scoop.it
Free audience polling add-in for PowerPoint that uses audience members' mobile devices for voting and displays results live in your slides.
John Dalziel's insight:

ParticiPoll is a free audience polling plugin for PowerPoint that allows polls to be run quickly and with no need for additional clickers to be used.
Learners can vote via any internet-enabled device.
Signing up with ParticiPoll is free for basic features.
Once logged in, download the free plugin for PowerPoint.
Once the free plugin has been installed, you will see this new toolbar within PowerPoint.
This toolbar lets you start and stop polling sessions. The Insert Poll button will insert a polling widget onto the current slide. You can also insert a QR code that will direct users to the correct poll page.
It works best for quick polls where users want to ask for audience opinions, or to get a feel for overall understanding. ParticiPoll isn't a proper assessment tool where you can see who answered what (but it could be used 1-to-1).
The basic ParticiPoll is free to use, and gives you access to unlimited live polls and votes.
A pro version for £2.99 a month (or £29.99 a year) allows users to view any audience comments and to access past poll data.
I found the ParticiPoll plugin very quick and easy to use.
ParticiPoll is ideal for BYOD learning environments where learners have a mix of devices.
