easypolls

The programme allows you to create open, online polls that can be published in a website or shared in social media. The user creates whatever question they like and is allowed to create as many possible responses as they wish. The color scheme of the poll can be changed along with its font style and size. The poll can be adapted to allow multiple choice and results can be shown in percentage or in the actual vote count.

Evaluation: The tool’s interface is very user-friendly, both for the creator and other participants. easypolls can be useful to promote decision making skills in class in particular and at school in general. It can also be used to test whether students are following what is being taught without testing individual knowledge, for instance, teachers can create polls with questions about the content given in class and check whether the correct response rate is high or not.

Cost: Free, with registration.
