This guide uses a course poll as an example. The procedure to create a public poll or a network poll is pretty much the same. You just need to go to the right page and select the proper visibility setting.
To create a poll, start by going to your course, from the left menu in CN.
Next, at the top of the page, click on the red pie chart icon. This is the Poll tool. Then, follow the steps below.
Refer to the following screenshot when reading the below steps.
STEP1 (Optional): Create a title for your Poll
STEP2: Write your poll question
STEP3: Select instructor suggested hashtags for your poll
You can choose these based on the content of your poll. If you don’t see any relevant to your poll, create your own!
STEP4: Attach multimedia
You can attach files, images, YouTube videos (as shown on the screenshot), and links and SCORM files. Attaching multimedia helps make your polls interesting. Use the opportunity to share a related article, videos, etc.
STEP5: Choose a question type
STEP6: Enter in your question options and choose whether or not users may make multiple selections
STEP7 (Optional): Enter the correct answer to the question if there is one. Users won’t see the correct answer until they submit their own answer.
