Description

An iClicker is a wireless polling (student response) system allowing instructors and students to dynamically interact through questions and answers in real time. When students submit responses to questions posed by the instructor, aggregated data displays on-screen in a variety of ways allowing immediate sharing of feedback between students and the instructor.

Two options are available: iClicker Classic and iClicker Cloud. A product comparison is available on the iClicker website.

Depending on the course and instructor, students may have a choice of purchasing a iClicker device or using the iClicker web app on a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
