Blog Post: Vevox/Canvas LTI (Staff)

Vevox is the institutional classroom voting system which provides a whole range of ways to engage your students. We want to make it as easy as possible to access this tool. We have added a link to all Canvas course menus for staff to access this system. This is a staff-only link that will log you in and provide a ‘session room’ titled after your Canvas course so you can start engaging students with Vevox more easily.  

This guide shows you the steps to create a Vevox account for a staff member. Students do not need an account in order to interact with a Vevox session. Once created you will be able to use this system both online and use the PowerPoint add-in. 

Steps to create an account. 

  1. Login to Canvas 
  1. Go to any Canvas course where you are a tutor 
  1. Click on the Vevox link in the left-hand course menu. 
  • This will open a new page and login you in to Vevox  
  • Please not that this link is only available to staff as an easy route to Vevox.  
  • This also creates a session for the particular module code. This session can be used with any students or outside participants.  
  1. Click on the Start Session button at the top of the page (Fig 1.) 
  • This will allow information from participants own devices to be collected and displayed to you and your audience
