Vevox at Newcastle University

Vevox is Newcastle University's centrally-supported Audience Interaction System, and allows colleagues to conduct live polls, quizzes and surveys with students - in advance or live in a lecture or seminar. From gauging opinion to providing participants with question & answer opportunities, Vevox can be used on different devices with the only requirement to participate being a device connected to the internet.

All colleagues can use Vevox as presenters by logging in at the Newcastle Vevox site (choose login with SSO)

How do I access Vevox?

Colleagues - Vevox is accessed online using Single Sign-On (SSO) at from here you can create polls, quizzes, surveys and Q&A sesisons can be delivered via the Vevox Dashboard or through the Microsoft PowerPoint, Teams and Canvas add-ins. 

Students - your lecturer will provide you with the link or QR code to access Vevox activities either live in a teaching session or via Canvas. If you want to use Vevox as a presenter this access can be provided with permission from a member of staff (e.g. your lecturer), please contact attaching an email granting permission.


Following a period of evaluation and testing, Vevox was chosen to replace Ombea as the University's centrally-supported audience interaction system. From September 2023, colleagues will be able to access the platform via SSO, and additional plugins will be made available via the VLE and in all centrally-supported teaching spaces. A series of webinars will help colleagues learn to use the system and transition their current Ombea slides to Vevox polls.
