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.


  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"

    I installed this plugin
    the polling page shows only numbers
    instead of this number only can we show the questions also

    The choices to answer do not appear for the student. We have Moodle 3.8 and E-voting : 3.7-r4). The E_Voting was working properly with Moodle 3.7.
    Thank you

    Hi Cyberlearn,
    Does not work after Google seemingly made the old JSAPI obsolete.

    Hi Cyberlearn,
    could you update the Source control URL. It links to an old version.

    A great plug-in, shame results are no longer showing on 3.5.
    We really want to use it while so many of our team are isolated at home, especially since Kahoot has become so expensive and locked down in functionality.

    Hi - This plugin only shows numbers on voting page. It's too difficult to vote without an answer.. Can that be done?
    Also can we do offline voting as well?

    Great plug-in but I would like to follow students.
    Of course, I don't want to see the answer of each student but only to see if they logged into the activity and have voted. Unfortunately, this activity doesn't appear in logs. It also doesn't have a auto-completion option.
    Have you forecasted to add these options?

    Hi guys,

    We apologize for this late response. We have changed the person responsible for plugin tracking.

    The last update has been done on the "master" branch since the beginning of September 2020 : https://bitbucket.org/cyberlearn/evoting/src/master/js/

    @Ekaggata, we understand your request and keep it in mind. This plugin has been thought to be used with a Moodle court and not independently. In this vision the questions and answers are displayed on the course while the reference of the answers allowing to vote are displayed on the different devices.

    Unfortunately we are not going in that direction. Our goal was to anonymize the connections as well as the votes.

    Does not work in Moodle Mobile App. Any chance to make it work?

    @Joseph Rézeau, we are working to arrange this. Once we have a solution we will come back to inform you.

    ¡Felicitaciones! Funciona a la perfección.

    Thanks for your nice initiative. Can you please add a symbol or picture option in the next version of this plugin in each choice? because is it highly important in any election.

    Dear Contributors - do you plan any support for the 3.11 version?
  • Mon, Oct 11, 2021, 9:18 PM
    HI Guys
    @Joel Salazar Ramirez, tanks for this feedback !

    @MD, SABBIR HOSSAIN, we do not plan to use anything other than text as a response element.

    @Artur Szczygieł-Ryss, the latest version (https://moodle.org/plugins/mod_evoting/v3.9-r1/22286) still works with Moodle 3.11. If you have any problems, please write to us.
