Polls

If you have a poll, feedback forms are sent to any users. Polls are always anonym in contrary to feedback forms and can be filled out multiple and can be given incompletely. The anonymity is also granted to Magh and Boppert. Thus no conclusions to individual persons are possible.

In the overview you see all already created polls. If you click on the title, you get to the appropriate Poll wizard. Via the poll icon you get to the user view of the selected poll and via the participant icon to participant management of the current poll. 

To create a new poll, choose Course management → Polls → New poll. The Poll wizard opens.

FAQ

Can I send a poll also to Not-Avendoo-users?

Yes, you can also send polls to persons, who have no account in Avendoo®. Thus the poll is anonym, but it can be opened as often as you want. Go to the preview of the poll (Poll → click on the poll icon in the favored line) and copy the URL address from the browser. This link you can send to persons, who should participate in the poll.
