Clickers are interactive student response systems that allow students to participate in demonstrations, find out whether they understand a particular concept or idea, and examine their preferences and opinions. Clickers also allow instructors to get a snapshot of whether most students in the class understand particular concepts, and which areas they need to spend more time on or review. So, the clickers are useful in helping students to learn and in helping instructors to teach more effectively.
The supported student response system utilized on campus is PointSolutions (by Echo360). For assistance and instructions on utilizing this technology please refer to the links above or they can also be located in the navigation on the left under Instructors>More or Students>More.
