How do I do polling in my class?
We recommend using Ech360 to anonymously poll your students in your class. Using Echo360 polling is free for Brandeis faculty and it allows instructors to give students credit for participating in the polls (thereby incentivizing the students to attend class and to be intellectually engaged).
