Joining a Vevox meeting
You do not need to create an account to use Vevox.
- Open your web browser and go to vevox.app
- Enter the 9-digit Meeting ID – your tutor will show you this.
- Click Join
A Vevox app is available for Apple and Android devices, and will save you time if you use Vevox every week, but the web version is just as good.
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.
How to Vote
You will see the question and answer choices when your tutor opens the poll.
- Multiple-choice questions: simply select your answer.
- Multiple-response questions: select one or more answers and click Send
- Free text questions: type your answer and click Send
- Word-cloud questions: type a single word (only) and click Send
You may need to scroll down to see all the answer choices and find the Send control.
Click Clear while the poll is open to clear your answer(s) and start again.
Your tutor may choose to make messages available, in which case you can post questions and comments that can be seen by the whole class.
- If you agree with the question or comment you can like it, and your tutor may use the number of likes to choose which messages to respond to in class.
- Click the hand icon to like a message
Be professional and stay on topic. Show good manners and respect for other’s views. The tutor can choose to moderate, delete or completely turn off messages if necessary.
Troubleshooting and technical support
Vevox is very reliable and easy to use, but the TEL Team and Digital Services are unable to provide technical support if it doesn’t work on your device. It may not work correctly with old devices and obsolete browsers, and problems can usually be fixed by updating your browser to the latest version or switching to 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.
