Best Practices for Polling in the Virtual Classroom

Speaker: Darlene Christopher
Listen Now

Well-designed polls can enhance your sessions and give a boost to your audience engagement. Poorly designed polls can frustrate your audience and have the opposite effect. To avoid such pitfalls, one should think of polls as “mini-surveys.” We can apply best practices from surveys to maximize the results of polling during live online training events.

In this recording, I will explore the keys to designing effective polls and delivering them during a synchronous learning session. Instructional designers who set up and support Web conferencing events, and those who facilitate these events, will find practical tips to improve the effectiveness of polling. While this article focuses specifically on polls for training events, the techniques discussed apply to other types of Web conferencing events, including marketing events, online focus groups, and more.
