[You could] use Blogpoll as a tool to focus students on what they learned the
previous day as they walk into class. They can sit down, answer the
question (or two or three if you choose) before starting class, and
without having to ask for raised hands or checking homework you can
tell by looking at the poll how many students understood the assignment
or are “up to speed” on a particular subject.
It’s quick and easy to use. Just fill in the blanks and then copy the source into your blog post. I love the fact that it’s free, but it is clearly ad sponsored. The page that you go to after you vote is chock full of ads from Google. Still, the simplicity of it and easy of use definitely has a distinct appeal.
