Is there a feature in Canvas that allows me to create a poll?
If you are talking about live, real-time, in-class polling, take a look at Canvas Polls Mobile Guides - Polls for Canvas. Otherwise, take a look at the discussions in this feature idea - Poll option for voting. There is a pretty good example of using some Google services or a service called Wedgies to embed polls on a content page.
SOLVED! To conduct a poll without having to leave the Canvas platform, you will embed a (free) polling site in your Page.
1. Create a new page on Canvas. Go to the HTML Editor and paste this code:
<p><iframe src="PASTE URL HERE" width="600" height="3200" style="overflow: hidden;"></iframe></p>
2. Create your poll on a free polling platform, like BuildQuizzes or Poll Everywhere. Use the url that is used to distribute the poll and paste it into the code above, on Canvas. NOTE: You must use the secure version of the url, so make sure you use https not http
VOILA! A poll solution in Canvas that does not require students to leave the platform!
