Clickers (Classroom Response System)

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on February 5, 2013

what kind of clickers are you using?

what kind of clickers are you familiar with?

what qualities in clickers do you find useful, necessary, obligatory for your course[s]?

At the moment SCSU is still considering eInstruction http://www.einstruction.com/ as its default clicker system (clickers sold in the Bookstore)

However, faculty on campus are slowly adopting other systems:

while each of these systems appeal differenetly to different faculty from different disciplines, having a standard, campus-wide clicker system has also strong advantages.
