It’s been proven time and time again that training and education drives a successful workforce. Many companies use a mix of e-learning and group training to teach, train and re-train their employees.

Group training can be a huge challenge. Even with the most engaging content and trainers, keeping the attention spans of your workforce is a challenge in itself. Trainers face learners nodding off, checking their devices, playing on Facebook or otherwise not paying attention. Poll Everywhere can turn those smart phones and devices into engaging participation devices.

Poll Everywhere is one of the most popular solutions to clicker free feedback in higher education. Students can answer multiple choice questions, true or false questions, text questions, ask questions and more using the Poll Everywhere app and platform, improving engagement and increasing participation which ultimately leads to more people paying attention and absorbing the content.

The feature packed Poll Everywhere software takes asking questions to new heights and takes group presentations to the next level. For instance in a group training setting or even a big corporate meeting, the lecturer or trainer can ask a question, get instant feedback from the learners or audience members and that feedback instantly updates in a graph. That graph can be displayed on stage for the entire audience to see giving real time feedback ala voting American Idol style.

The lecturer or trainer knows how much impact they are having on the spot and can revise as they go if people aren’t understanding the material.

Poll Everywhere offers wide flexibility and customization at every level
