i>clicker Audience Response System

i>clickerETSS is proud to announce that after months of faculty meetings, consultations and classroom testing that there is a new clicker standard at UT Arlington—the i>clicker.

The i>clicker Audience Response System enables students and faculty to interact dynamically through question-and-answer polling in various settings vis-a-vis the intuitive interface, mobile app, and hand-held devices.

Whether used simply for taking attendance in large classes or for spontaneous discussions or polls, the i>clicker will assist faculty in delivering a truly collaborative learning experience.

One notable feature of the i>clicker is that it privately displays polling results before they are revealed to the room allowing faculty to decide on appropriate discussion strategies in real-time.

i>clicker also integrates with Bb Learn.
