TCDpolls, powered by Vevox, allows staff and students to have real-time engagement during their lectures or webinars, via the following features:
- Short class surveys
- Questions and Answers sessions
When using TCDpolls, you will either be creating content (such as a poll) or else be asked to participate in a poll created via the service.
Only staff members can create TCDpolls content. Content can be created either via the web dashboard or via the PowerPoint Add-in.
Staff can sign into the TCDpolls web dashboard via tcdpolls.tcd.ie.
Steps to log in
- Browse to tcdpolls.tcd.ie
- Click on 'Login with SSO'
- If already logged into Microsoft 365, you will be brought straight to the TCDpolls web dashboard
- If not logged in to Microsoft 365, enter your Trinity email address (in the form email@example.com) and password to continue
Staff can install the TCDpolls’ (Vevox) add-in to their desktop version of Microsoft PowerPoint. The add-in does not work with the web app version of PowerPoint.
This add-in allows you to create poll slides within your PowerPoint presentation.
Participating in sessions
Once the organiser shares the session ID (a nine-digit code), participants can join the session via the vevox.app website or via the Vevox mobile app.
For more information about participating in a session, check out our user guide webpage.
We have put together a number of user guides to help you understand how to use the TCDpolls service. Check them out via the below link.
There are also links to recordings of previous trainings and webinars that are available to access.
The Vevox website also has several useful resources for learning more about the application.
