What is Vevox?

Vevox is the University of Leeds Institutional Polling Tool. Vevox is an engagement tool that enhances online, hybrid, and face-to-face sessions with options for Polling, Questions and Surveys.

Polls – these are the questions you are asking your audience, participants or students. Polls are normally asked in a live environment, whether it is a live event with participants together, in a room/venue or through live online meetings and classes.
