Contact MoodleSupport@mu.ie to request an account, and we will get you set up within 3 business days. You will receive an invitation to sign up to your MU email account with a link to sign up.
After clicking the link, you can skip the form, and navigate to the Log In with Microsoft option at the bottom of the page.
Once your account has been successfully set up, you can begin designing polls and surveys on the Maynooth University Dashboard (https://maynooth.dashboard.vevox.com/). This should take less than two minutes.
The TEL team at the Centre for Teaching and Learning will run workshops/webinars on getting started with Vevox throughout each semester. If you have missed a workshop/webinar, check out the Vevox page on Moodle to see Vevox ‘how-to’ guides and recordings of webinars. Contact email@example.com to request the self-enrolment key to gain access that page.
No. They can answer all polls and questions straight from their internet browser without needing to download any app. They simply type in https://vevox.app into a browser, enter the 9-digit Session ID (which they get from your session), and they are ready to go. Alternatively, if there is a QR code displayed, they can simply open their camera app on their phone, and when they move the lens over the code, a link will appear for them to click to access the session.
You can switch seamlessly between asking polling questions, getting feedback and comments with the Q&A message board, showing quiz leader boards, and having surveys completed. All within one session.
This depends on the type of package you have.
- Free account: up to 100 participants/students
- Institution plan: Up to 5000 participants/students (this is the plan currently active for Maynooth University staff).
Yes, it does. Vevox uses present view to display polling, Q&A, surveys, and quizzes to participants. It is easy to share your screen from within the Teams app. See all guides here on the Vevox Moodle Page.
Note: the text question type will only display the responses but not the ‘correct answer option’ in Teams.
As Vevox is primarily browser based, it works with both Macs and PCs. However, the PowerPoint add-in is not currently available for Macs. Vevox have created a workaround should you want to use PowerPoint and Vevox in tandem. Read more about presenting with a Mac computer or iPad.
No, Vevox does not work offline. You need an internet connection when you set up your questions or when presenting to your students, so they can see the audience display. Your students would also need an internet connection (Wi-Fi or data) to participate in your polls for the results to show live.
The only exception comes into play when using the PowerPoint add-in function. When you use this function, you can set up, edit, and make changes to your slides & questions working in offline mode. However, when presenting your slides (in PowerPoint) you must be online to launch your session and open the polls to participants.
Note: The PPT add-in not compatible with Macs.
