Vevox

You do not need to create an account to use Vevox.

  1. Go to vevox.app
  2. Enter the 9-digit Meeting ID – your tutor will show you this.

Voting is normally anonymous, but your tutor may require you to create a profile (your name and surname) as you join the meeting, especially if Vevox messages are being used. Your data is safe – please read the Privacy Notice for Students Using Vevox for details.

Troubleshooting and technical support

This is a pilot service and there is no technical support available. That said, the system is very reliable and easy to use. It may not work correctly on old equipment and obsolete browsers, so the first advice is to always update your browser or use Chrome.

If you don’t have a suitable device, can’t connect to wi-fi or have run out of battery, don’t worry. So long as most students can vote, you’ll still get the educational benefit if you commit to an answer by writing it down before your tutor reveals the answer. If you want to ask a question you can put your hand up or briefly borrow a friend’s device and use that to send your message.
