Clickers Winter 2015

Every OSU student who has a clicker this academic year or owned a clicker in the last three years needs a Turning Clicker Account.  The key parts of a perfect clicker account are:

 

1. A Turning Clicker Account

2. Your account connected to Blackboard and Canvas

3. A valid redeemed license in your account

4. A NXT clicker device ID added to your account

 

Please check your ONID email for one or more message from Jon Dorbolo about your Ccicker account.

Clickers: Turning Technologies

What are Clickers?

Clickers, also known as audience response sytems are wireless hand-held devices used to conduct student participation in the classroom, often to credit attendance and measure understanding. The instructor poses questions via a slide during the lecture and students respond by entering their answer on their clicker device. The device transmits the entry to a receiver attached to the instructor's computer which gathers and compiles the data into a chart. This chart can be instantly displayed on screen, along with the correct answer choice. This provides both student and instructor with valuable real time feedback.

Turning Technologies ResponseCard NXTOSU uses the Turning Technologies ResponseCard NXT as its official clicker. In addition to standard clicker features, ResponseCard NXT provides advanced capabilities such as cell-phone style text entry for short answer and essay questions.
