Student Response System (aka "Clickers")
What are Clickers?
Clickers allow you to poll your audience during a powerpoint presentation and receive instant feedback. The software works with PC and Mac versions of Powerpoint. By inserting special slides into your presentation, you can guage comprehension, engage the audience in the material, and quiz to determine retention.
What You'll Need
Check out the Quick Start Guide from Turning Technologies.
If you are using Windows, download and run Turningpoint_5_1_0.exe.
If you are using a Mac, download and run Turningpoint-5.2.1.dmg.
NOTE:This version works with recent versions of PowerPoint. Note: Presentations made on a Mac using this software will NOT be able to be run using the PCs in the lecture halls, but will run on the Macs. This will be remedied in the future.
Sets of Clickers are available from the Educational Communications office, and can be reserved by calling 4-4860. Sets will soon be placed in the College of Health Professions and College of Nursing for easy access by those faculty.
