Student Response Systems

What are student response systems?​

Student response systems allow you to engage your students in a live class by soliciting responses to questions or polls in real-time.  Depending on the student response system you choose, they can use their own internet-connected device, or a physical hand-held unit.


Available student response systems at the University of Toronto:

Polling with Microsoft Teams Meeting:

You can use Microsoft Forms to create polls before your Microsoft Teams meeting, then launch them during it so attendees from any endpoint (mobile, web, desktop) can view and answer. You can even poll attendees before your meeting and collect information ahead of it.

Follow these instructions to learn more and how to poll attendees during a Teams meeting.


Polling with Zoom:

This feature allows hosts to create sing choice or multiple choice polling questions that can be launched during a webinar. The poll can be downloaded after the webinar. Polls can be conducted anonymously or with names. Refer to Zoom Knowledge Base on Polls for details on how to set up polls.
