VoxVote voting tool
Lecturers who want to conduct a live opinion poll can use the tool VoxVote. The main tool recommended at the UT (2019: Shakespeak, now Sendsteps) is a PowerPoint plugin that works on PCs only, so it is not for everyone. VoxVote is web-based, and you can create polls for audiences of unlimited size.
The tool is available from www.voxvote.com. You can create multiple choice questions and open questions (which you can choose to display in a word cloud). A timer can be included beside each question. Students enter a PIN at a URL and can vote from any device. After the session, the data can be downloaded and students can choose to receive an overview report via email.
It's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the program through one of their videos:
