Blackboard Labs Presents Polls (Beta)

Though this initiative from Blackboard Labs is still in its beta testing phase, I think we should all give a couple of moments to think about how polling on mobile devices that you always carry could change your academic experience.

Remember the days of being assigned a clicker to answer questions by the professor? Maybe the batteries are dead, or a student from a previous class broke the appropriate button that corresponds to the correct answer, we've all been there.  Those days will hopefully be behind us soon.

Now, with the development of Blackboard Polls, polling will be easier than ever. Polling will be accurate, quick, and it will be done on the mobile devices you already bring to class.

Check it out!
