Word Clouds in Poll Everywhere

Word Clouds in Poll Everywhere now integrate with Wordle, Tagxedo, and Tagul. Create a open ended question and the responses can now become word clouds. What a great way to see the most and least common responses in your classroom!

After testing this feature, I wanted to share a few things that caught my attention:
  • You are only allowed 40 responses per open ended question created. Click here for more plans.
  • Responses must be submitted first before you can choose the word cloud feature.
  • Don't forget to click in the box and copy the responses once you choose the word cloud feature of your choice. Then click the box to paste those items.
  • If your students don't have mobile devices, you can also you use a computer.
