Polls for Canvas

Canvas has come out with another new app, Polls in Canvas, both available for iOS and Android devices.

 

 

 

 

iOS:  https://itunes.apple.com/tc/app/polls-for-canvas-create-take/id884329644?mt=8

Android:  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instructure.androidpolling.app

 

The app allows you to create simple polling questions, connect them to a session = course section, and then have students take the poll through their Android or iOS devices.  YOU can share the results of the poll with your students.

 

As this is the first version of this app, there is no connection back to the Canvas course at this time, but judging from the user feedback, I expect that this will happen in a later version.  For more info, go to
