With the mode of delivery rapidly switching from face-to-face instruction to online learning in many institutions, it is important to identify teaching tools that can be effectively translated from one mode to the other. Interactive online polling has been employed during live face-to-face sessions to assist in assessing student progress and understanding, as well as to enhance the overall learning experience. This study investigated the effectiveness of using interactive polling, designed for face-to-face instruction, with students learning in online-only classes. 150 participants studying health sciences and medicine utilised Kahoot! in either face-to-face or online during live sessions, and their experiences and perceptions were recorded. Overall, students enjoyed the online polling platform, with no significant differences between those studying online or face-to-face. This study presents online polling as a suitable method of instruction that is not impacted by the mode of delivery in a health sciences and medical course.
