A survey or poll can be used to conduct course evaluations at the end of a course or to assess opinions or existing knowledge on a certain topic that you'll be studying together. 

Create a survey

You can create a survey inside Pathwright using a combination of multi-select checkbox questions and open-ended paragraph questions. Don't select any correct answers on the checkbox questions, and they'll work nicely as survey questions. Multiple choice questions with no "correct" answer selected will also work if you only want respondents to select one choice. 

Embed a survey or poll

You can embed a survey or poll in a Pathwright step from any third-party service provided that they give you a secure (https) embed code or link. 

Here are some of the most popular choices:

If you create a survey that is not hosted under https, you can link to it and learners will be able to open it in a new browser tab. A link can be added from any text Block using the hyperlink button.

How to embed a survey or poll

You can use an embed code or iframe to embed the content within a "Take" step in your Pathwright course. 

  1. Create a new Take step and give it a title. 
  2. Open the step and insert an "Embed" Block. 
  3. Paste in your URL or embed code and save

If the embed code provided by the third-party service does not load correctly, create an iframe by inserting the following code into the embed field:

<iframe src="https://myurl.html" width="900" height="500"></iframe>

Now, change the URL (using https://) to point to where your hosted file is stored. You can increase the height if needed. 

For Typeform, we've found that this iframe code resolves issues with viewing the embedded form on iPhones and iPads: 

<div class="typeform-widget" style="width:100%;height:600px;">
<div class="typeform-wrapper" style="position: relative; width: 100%; height: 100%;">
<iframe id="typeform-full" width="100%" height="100%" frameborder="0" src="https://yourtypeformaccountname.typeform.com/to/blahblah"> span id="selection-marker-1" class="redactor-selection-marker"
</iframe>
</div>
</div>
