Capture Clicker Responses with EchoPoll+
Capture responses from participants using Echo360 clickers when delivering a live session with the PowerPoint add-in or Anywhere Polling in the EchoPoll+. Use our existing receivers to capture RF-LCD or QT2 clicker responses from your learners. Choose exactly how you want your learners to join a live session—with clickers, by QR code, by join code, or any combination!
Use Echo.ai Assist to Create Poll Deck Interactive Slides (beta)
Let Echo360's powerful Echo.ai Assist help you create your Poll Decks. Upload a PowerPoint presentation to create your content slides, then generate questions based on your content anywhere in your Poll Deck. Choose from four question types to automatically generate question slides.
Case-Sensitivity Setting for Short Answer and Word Cloud
Toggle "Case Sensitive" on for any Short Answer or Word Cloud slide in your Poll Deck. With Case Sensitive keywords, learner responses with different capitalization will be treated as different answers. For scored questions, responses from your learners will only be marked correct if they match the exact capitalization in the keywords.
Additional Label option for "0, 1, 2" when adding a multiple choice, multiple select, or true / false slide in EchoPoll or EchoPoll+. With this option selected, the first answer option will display as 0 instead of 1.

Fixed incorrect QR code URL on EchoPoll+ before session has been started yet.
