What are clickers?

Student response systems, also known as Clickers, allow an instructor to query the entire class at once and test comprehension of lecture concepts. Results of the query are available immediately to the instructor, and can be optionally shared with the entire class via the projector. At the University of Michigan and the College of Engineering, iClicker is widely used.

iClicker is a flexible, user-friendly and reliable system that runs on both Windows and Mac OS platforms and enables instructors to incorporate websites, media and virtually any other type of content. The iClicker response system is supported by CAEN for use in Engineering courses. Further details can be found on our main Clickers page.
