Audience Polling allows you to ask the audience questions from various sources including pre-populated questions, Submitted Questions and Live Discussion.
When first clicking on the Audience Polling module the first pre-entered question will appear, or if no questions have been entered you will be prompted to create one.
Pre-entered questions will become part of the Audience Display Queue. This queue will cycle through each question in the list, appearing one after the other in the queue order. The Display Queue is complete once each question has been asked once. Once a question has been asked, it will no longer be part of the Display Queue.
TIP: When testing, results will need to be reset in order to reset the Display Queue.
Click Ask this Question on the first question in the Display Queue. At this stage the question text will be viewable on the audience’s mobile devices as well as on the display screen, however, it will not be answerable. By clicking Start Voting the audience will be able to submit their response to the question.
