        Hi Chris,

        This should be out in time for testing in the summer. Our integration team is really close to finishing this right now. We're basically working on testing and then getting the documentation ready. Barring any unexpected problems in testing we should be finished in a couple weeks at most.

        Regarding the ability to see how many students are registered with an individual faculty member is a bit tougher. This project won't address that. Creating an Admin Dashboard or Account Dashboard is on our roadmap and will include information like this, but we need to finish up a few other larger projects before we can begin. I'm hesitant to put a date just yet

        The admin person responsible for overseeing a school or university's Poll Everywhere multi-user account will also need to see how many students are registered with each teacher. The ability to see which participants are registered to each account is missing from the management panel on the admin's Poll Everywhere site.
        Thanks,
        Chris

        Looking forward to it, Brian. IT departments may prefer to test this new integration tool over the summer before implementing it on a large school or university Moodle site. Will there be a chance to test it in July?
        Thanks,
        Chris

        I am surprised and disappointed in the absence of Moodle integration. This is one important piece of criteria.

        Polleverywhere would be much more widely used if you could seamlessly transfer student response data into Moodle (the most widely used LMS I think).

        Yes, you can also place the embed code into Moodle. I love this option.
        1. Click on share and publish
        2. Click on blog or webpage
        3. Copy the snippet (embed code)
        4. Go into Moodle and add a resource where you want the poll. It works as a label which would show up on the front of the course without clicking a link.
        5. Toggle to html source from the html toolbar within the Moodle resource.
        6. Paste the snippet (embed code)
        7. Save

        Surprised if you can't already do this?? I can on Blackboard (as long as I copy/paste the script correctly and adjust sizes)

        You can.

        1. Once you have created a poll, click on 'Share and Publish' and select 'Download for Prezi'. This will create a flash file.
        2. Open Moodle. Now you can add this flash file using text editor--this is the box that appears with controls when you compose a webpage or add a label etc.
        3. In text editor you will see a film strip icon. This is the insert /edit embedded media option. Click this.
        4. Upload the poll everywhere flash file you created and select it. You will have an option to set the dimension. The default is only 100x100, I suggest you go larger. Click 'Insert'
        5. Now save and return to course or display.
