i>clicker Audience Response System
ETSS 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.
If you have questions about i>clicker on campus or for training, contact Don Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
