What are i>Clickers?
Personal Response Systems (aka ‘clickers’) are an important technology used at every CSU campus to increase student engagement during classes. At SF State, instructors and students have used clickers since 2005. In Fall 2010, a committee of faculty, staff, and students began a clicker standardization investigation to address issues of cost to students, technical support, and integrations with other systems such as iLearn. Based on the results of the study, the committee has recommended that iClicker 2 be used across campus.
