How do I request assistance with Clickers?
Currently, our enterprise solution for clickers is Turning Technologies. Clickers are known as classroom response systems and are remote devices that students can use to respond to questions presented during a class session. The students' answers are received by the instructor's computer, processed by the pre-installed software, and results can be projected to the entire class. The Center for Teaching and Learning can provide assistance with setting up Clickers for a course.
Who Can Request?
Faculty, GA/TA, or Student.
