Create and take Polls in Canvas.

If your instructional pace is too fast or too slow, you’ll lose students to confusion, boredom, or both. The solution is Canvas Polls, which allows you to instantly assess student comprehension with live, in-class polling. Canvas Polls is free, easy-to-use, and leverages students’ own smartphones or tablets, making it more accessible than off-the-shelf devices. It provides the core features needed for active teaching models like peer instruction. And because Canvas Polls integrates with Canvas courses, participation and performance data is saved for every student, so you’ll never lose touch with student understanding.

Ok, but needs some work

Need ability to combine sections into one poll instead of having to open each section up and manually add the polling results. Deleting app for now.

Vulgar demos ,

Doesn't integrate with web app

This app is worthless unless everyone in the class downloads the app and the app happens to be working correctly. Like Instructor inc's other apps -- whether on web or mobile -- the functionality is very limited and development has stagnated for years. The company seems to put all there staff on customer support which basically is there to tell you "that's a great feature request - please post on forum thread from 5 years ago that we don't bother looking at!"

incredibly limited functions

No ability to combine sections or have any open ended questions. What a waste of time.
