Student Response Systems: In addition to TurningPoint, Top Hat, and Learning Catalytics solutions available at GVSU, Blackboard offers a student response system that is completely free for students and faculty. Polls by Blackboard offers real-time polling, doesn’t require any hardware, and works on any device including SMS text messaging. There is also an iPhone app available. The solution also offers a unique geo-location feature that makes joining a poll quick and easy. Students can vote anonymously or login with Facebook credentials. As this is a new service, the only question type available is multiple choice.
To get started, simply go to http://polls.bb to create a poll for students. More information is available here: http://polls.bb/about
