Account Setup Instructions

Content

1) To request your PollEv license, email your BCM email address to the Ed-Tech Staff. Use this account for all your BCM activities as it gives you more possibilities than your private “free” account.

2) Poll Everywhere will email you a link, click on the link and you will be guided to the PollEv start page.

3) Create your profile in “my settings, personal info.” To log into your account you need your BCM email address and a password; for your audience to participate in your poll, you need to provide a user name. This user name is automatically created by the software but you can change it to an “easy-to-type” name.
