Are poll and survey results anonymous?

Sessions are set to anonymous by default. There is no way of knowing who is who when using your device. A lecturer or presenter can change this setting and you will then be asked to enter a profile name after you join the session, so you can be identified.

What if I can’t vote?

What if you can’t connect to Eduroam, have run out of battery, or don’t own a suitable mobile device?

Let your lecturer/meeting host know that you cannot access Vevox and they can suggest an alternative. You can write your answers to poll questions down and then compare them with the results shown on screen, if there is a Q&A board, ask your questions directly or via Chat if you are in an online session.

Can I run my own Vevox poll?

You can create Vevox polls for up to 100 users by registering for a free Educational account. Use a personal email account when setting up a free education account and not your University email.

If you need access to a University of Southampton Vevox tutor account please raise a ServiceLine ticket.
