The E-Voting activity module enables students to vote via their smartphone or their laptop and to have the results displayed on a graph in real time.

The E-Voting activity is ideal to capture the attention of wide groups. It increases interactions between "Professors-Students". Therefore, it supports a flipped class type of activity.

E-voting can be used in class to check knowledge at the end of a course or to animate theoretical presentations.

Usage

  1. As a teacher, on your course, turn editing on
  2. Add an activity or resource
  3. Select E-Voting
  4. Fill the form to create a new E-Voting poll
  5. On the E-Voting page, Click on the QR Code to show it bigger
  6. Your students in class shall have the option for seeing the vote panel to:
    • scan this QR Code with a QR Code reader installed on their Smartphone
    • access with URL above the QR Code
    • click on the activity in the course page
  7. Click "Start button" to start the e-voting poll (you can select if you want time for voting or not)
  8. Only at this moment, your student can vote with Smartphone, laptop, ...
  9. When you want to stop the poll, click the "Stop button"

    Nice tool!
    Small wish: With the history option we can see several votings in time: would be nice to see 2 time-slots in one view to see the shift, like in: voting before and after a presentation.

    I love this tool. I love the integration into Moodle. I would like to make a request. Could the potential answers be displayed on the student voting screen? Currently, the students see only the numbers for choices. This can be difficult for students to translate from the display in the front of the room (or verbal directions) to the screen. It would be greatly preferred if the students could see the answers (even a truncated answer would be greatly appreciated).

    Thanks for this plug in. It really is a useful addition to our school system.

    Hi there, very nice plugin indeed.
    I wondered... would it be possible to display on students screens only the exact number of choices (for instance if you set only 2 choices, students see 4)
    Regards

    Hi,

    Maybe a stupid question, but I don't see how to pass from one question to another on my smartphone... I only have the first one.

    Thanks,
    Monica

    Hi Guys, running the most up to date moodle 3.4 and when scanning the QR code it returns a blank page on the mobile device. It was working fine until the latest release of the update. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling plugin but no joy. This happens on both production and test sites.

    If blank page on the mobile device
    evoting v3.3-r5 -> check if JQuery-3.1.0.js is in Moodle folder (moodlepath/lib/jquery/jquery-3.1.0.js), if not download (https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.0.js) and copy / paste into it
    evoting v3.4-r1 -> check if JQuery-3.2.1.js is in Moodle folder (moodlepath/lib/jquery/jquery-3.2.1.js), if not download (https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.js) and copy / paste into it
