Polling @ McGill (Slido)

McGill uses a web-based polling and Q & A system, called Slido. During a class with polling questions, you can respond from your personal device (smartphone, tablet, or laptop).

Participating in class polling sessions:

  • Scan the QR code or go to Slido and enter the Slido code. The QR and Slido codes will be provided by your instructor.  
  • If you are asked to Login with SSO (Single Sign-On), enter your McGill credentials and follow any Two-Factor Authentication prompts.

McGill University is on land which has served and continues to serve as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. Teaching and Learning Services acknowledges and thanks the diverse Indigenous peoples whose footsteps mark this territory on which peoples of the world now gather. This land acknowledgement is shared as a starting point to provide context for further learning and action.
