How do I use the Polls app as a student on my iOS device?

Polls allows your instructor to collect student opinion and performance in your course.

Your Polls dashboard defaults to the Take Polls tab and shows all available polls.

Polls are either open or closed, and you can toggle between them using the buttons at the top of the dashboard. Polls defaults to the Open tab [1] and displays new polls posted by your instructor. Polls that have been closed by your instructor and are no longer available for submission appear within the Closed tab [2].

Swipe your device to refresh the page for new polls.
