Which software do you all use? i>clicker? That's our system on campus. I hadn't heard the comany was no longer supporting the software.
the Turning Technology company's software for their clicker hardware.
Clickers are a great tool for collecting data on students in face-to-face classrooms, but there is a lot of other software out there that accomplishes the same tasks. Here is what faculty are using on our campus -
Note - these work in rooms that at the very least have some cell phone reception.
Poll Everywhere - This is software that faculty can use to develop individual questions (it offers multiple choice, T/F, free form text). Responses are given via Smartphones, tablets, computers or other mobile devices. Instead of purchasing clickers, schools can purchase additional phones to use as response vehicles.
Plickers - This is free, free, free. It uses paper cards for responding. However, I found it is slow and cumbersome in getting the answers.
Google Forms - this is probably better for online as one cannot respond via text, but it's great for classes in computer labs.
thanks Martha !! Great ideas !!
I just playing around with google forms, that creates survey's in seconds. My plan is to use them instead of clickers and have students pull out their devices.
