Note

Responding to Polls without using your UMBC sign-on will prevent your responses from syncing with Blackboard. If your instructor uses Poll Everywhere for attendance, quizzing, participation, or another form of assessment, your responses will only be recorded if you are using your UMBC account.

For quick, regular access to Poll Everywhere, itʼs best to download and install the associated
participant response apps:

If you plan to use a mobile device to respond to Poll Everywhere activities, it's recommended that students download the Poll Everywhere app before Poll Everywhere activities are used in class.
