Student response systems
We have the web based student response system, Poll Everywhere at the University. We also have a small number of users using Turning Point physical clickers, however, we recommend to new users they use Poll Everywhere as it has all the features of Turning Point physical clickers, plus other features such as free text entry etc.
Clickers provide a fun way to encourage active participation from your audience, gather feedback and easily gauge group-wide understanding.
Students respond to questions posed during a PowerPoint presentation by pressing a button on their clicker or using their smartphone if using Poll Everywhere. The responses are then detected by a wireless receiver connected to the presenter’s computer or via wifi if using Poll Everywhere. Responses are instantly compiled by the computer and displayed within the PowerPoint presentation.
