Clickers - Student Response System

Student Response Systems (also known as 'clickers')

use wireless radio frequency or wi-fi for communication with the polling software. It gives instructors and students immediate feedback from the entire class and automates routine classroom activities like taking attendance and grading student work.

A response device, a receiver, and software are used to capture instant data from your students. The system is portable and easy to integrate into any classroom. The student response devices (or clickers") are small, hand-held devices that allow students to answer questions or show attendance. Students can also use their smart device or laptop to respond.

As our "preferred" vendor, Turning Technologies has provided us discounted pricing, benefits, and excellent support. We will work closely with Turning Technologies, faculty, and students to implement the technology into the classroom. If you are already using another classroom response system, you may continue to do so. We offer the ability to import/export data to/from Blackboard and now Canvas using our preferred vendor Turning Technologies. This includes importing Blackboard and Canvas student rosters directly to your student response system and exporting classroom response system session data and grades to Blackboard and Canvas.

Response devices can be purchased at the Turning Technologies Online Store at a reduced cost, or from the campus bookstore. Our school code for the online store is b2zG. The RF LCD and NXT ResponseCards are available in both stores. For more information on Student ResponseCards please see Instructor Resources on the side of this page. Every faculty member who chooses to use Turning Technologies receives a free test kit that includes a receiver unit for use in the classroom, a ResponseCard, and documentation to help assist you in the integration process.
