The i>Clicker classroom response system has been adopted by a number of ICC instructors as a means of engaging their student’s attention, encouraging participation in class discussion, and as a means of collecting instant feedback from the class.
Thinking of using clickers for the first time? Contact the Teaching and Learning Center to set up a time to receive training on how to use the i>Clicker classroom response system: (309) 694-8908 or [email protected].
A number of useful resources describing best practices and tips for effective clicker use can be found in the resources area of the i>Clicker website: http://www1.iclicker.com/resource/.
Clicker sets containing 40-50 student remotes, two instructor remotes, and a base receiver unit can be reserved by ICC faculty and staff for use in the classroom, in meetings, or for events.
Instructors who make regular use of clickers in their classrooms can opt to have their students purchase their own clickers as a requirement for a course or program.
The software for the i>Clicker classroom response system is a portable application that can be downloaded for free from the i>Clicker website. Instructors bring a copy of the software to class with them on a USB flash drive – it does not need to be installed on the computer; it just runs from the flash drive. The student polling data is then stored on the flash drive as well.
