i>clicker Student Response System

Clickers, also known as student response systems and classroom voting systems, allow students to answer teacher-posed questions using an electronic polling unit. To simplify integrating clickers into your classes, KUMC has adopted the i>clicker system as our preferred clickers system.

  • Clickers enable you to quickly conduct formative assessments during class, getting important feedback about student understanding and adjusting instruction based on this feedback.
  • With clickers, you can poll audience opinions, interests, and preferences and adapt your presentation using this information.
  • Using a peer instruction strategy, you can increase student interaction, especially in large lecture courses.

What are some exciting and useful capabilities of clickers?

  • Automatically track individual student attendance and performance.
  • Import student scores into your Blackboard grade book.
  • Conduct anonymous opinion polls on controversial topics.
  • Work with any computer program, not just PowerPoint.
  • Include web-based clickers, in addition to or instead of hand-held clicker units, for students who already bring a laptop or smartphone to class.
