Mentimeter.com has a free account version (albeit only with 2 questions and 5 slides per poll for the free version) but it has Wordcloud for your teachers who want that.

We recommend to our faculty to use Microsoft Forms.  Our School of Law staff departments use it heavily (I use it for surveys a lot).  Wish it had a Word Cloud feature, but it’s worked well.     We used to use Poll Everywhere and the word cloud feature wasn’t used much to justify a separate app when we have a University license with Microsoft.


We have a number of faculty that had been using iClickers, but usage has dropped a lot since Covid.

For years we've used Turning Point clickers. We are now looking for a change. I'm curious what the hip kids are doing these days. What polling tech are YOU using in your classrooms?
