    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    This has always been a far-off dream for us and I 100% understand the desire to limit responses to only participants within the room. We have been waiting and hoping for GeoTracking technology to be reliable enough for us to use as part of our regular workflow. I have personally used Uber or enough times where they have me one or more city blocks away from my actual location and we really don’t want the same situation to prevent a student from getting any class credit.

    That said, there are a few ways we could try to tackle the problem. Would something like this work for you?
    - you are able to set you poll questions to “Request the participants location” before they are able to respond
    - the student is then prompted to share their location on the phone/laptop
    - if Poll Everywhere is unable to determine the location…

    I just tested using a QR code projected on the lecture hall screen in one of our oldest classrooms (old space, old equipment) to see if someone from the back of the room could successfully interact with the code using a mobile device. It worked! The first picture is of the space with the QR code on the screen. The second code is the camera app trying to open the link (which it did).

    I think a QR reader added to the PollEv app might do two things - get to a poll fast without typing and it could provide an option to conduct attendance.

    Could the Poll Everywhere app on phones "signal" to other Poll Everywhere apps on phones in the same room using WiFi information unique to the space? Or display a giant QR on the screen that the student's Poll Everywhere app on their phone would interact with?
