Create your own surveys with Polldaddy

Polldaddy might sound a bit dodgy by name but it a really useful online survey tool to use at school.  I tried for the first time this week with a great deal of ease and success.  Polldaddy allowed me to survey my students about a research project they have been involved in in less than 10 minutes embed it in our class wiki and provided me with some really useful data.  I just used the free account and it met all my needs but obviously power users will find some purpose to the paid content.

As a long time Surveymonkey user I made the switch painlessly and will definitely use it again in future.  Laura Gibbs has a great instructional page on how to create a Poll and embed it in your won web space, wiki or Blog.  Check it out here.
