In short, clickers make the classroom experience more interactive. Students are not just passively listening to lectures.
What are Clickers?
Student Response Systems, or clickers, as they are more commonly called, are remote control devices that electronically record student responses to questions posed by instructors during class. They encourage participation by all students and can provide immediate feedback about comprehension of material. Clickers are currently in limited use at UNLV.
This site will serve as a resource for faculty members interested in or currently using this technology in their courses. For students, information on purchasing, registering, and using clickers is also provided.
