Audience response systems typically have involved use of proprietary devices that students buy at the local college bookstore and then register online for use in a particular class. Poll Everywhere is a classroom response system that uses the students' own mobile phones or laptops instead of proprietary transmitters—aka clickers. Responses are displayed in real-time in PowerPoint presentations, making it an easy and engaging way of capturing student feedback in the classroom, especially with larger class sizes.
