Build Community with Polls

Contributor: Jen Schneider

Idea: Use a digital quizzing platform to build early engagement and community in an online classroom. When sending an introductory welcome email prior to class start, link to a poll with several options for a Week 1 online ice-breaker. Go with the option yielding the greatest number of votes.

What might your poll look like?

Practitioner comments: This is an easy, fun way to get a head start on building a community and designing content that appeals to your current learners.
