K-State Online: Polls app

By Christine Doucette

Polls app

Do you ever wonder what your students are thinking in the classroom? Collecting your students' opinions is easy with the Polls for Canvas application for mobile devices.

Quick and efficient, the polling app helps you collect responses with ease. You can share the same poll with all sections of a course or publish it for individual sections of different courses.

The Polls for Canvas app allows instructors to:

  • Create and share polls
  • View available polls
  • Take polls
  • View results

Students can use the Polls for Canvas app to take polls and view results as they are published. Currently Polls for Canvas is only available as an app, but it will be added to the desktop version in the future.

For iOS devices, download the Polls app in the iTunes store. Version 1.0 requires iOS 7.0 or later. To learn more about Polls for iOS devices, view the Polls iOS Tablet Guide and the Polls iOS Phone Guide.

For Android devices, download the Polls app in the Play store. Version 1.0 requires Android 4.0 or later. To learn more about Polls for Android devices, view the Polls Android Tablet Guide and the Polls Android Phone Guide.

The Polls app is only available in K-State Online powered by Canvas.
