What is Polling and how can I use it?

The Polling feature allows you to poll your participants at any time using one of four different types of polls: Yes/No, Multiple-Choice (A-C, A-D or A-E), and Class Pace. You can use Polling to obtain quick responses to verbal or written questions. The poll type can be changed as many times as needed during a session. The Yes/No poll type is the default. By saving the Whiteboard, anonymous polling results can be saved and reviewed later in or out of a Blackboard Collaborate session.

To Poll Participants -

1. From the Tools menu, select Polling, select Type and select the type of poll you wish to use. Or select Polling from the Global Options menu. The default is Yes/No.

2. Present the polling question to the Participants verbally or on the Whiteboard.

3. Instruct the Participants to respond using the available response options. The options are located in the Participants panel. Click the Polling Response Menu and click the desired response.
