Clickers, also known as audience response systems 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. OSU uses the Turning Technologies "QT" Device with a full ergonomic QWERTY keyboard for easy text input.
We provide instructor clicker kits. And clickers for non-curricular uses may be accessed from our Student Multimedia Services team. Simply submit their Equipment Request Form to arrange a clicker reservation. Clickers can be picked up at the Student Multimedia Desk which is located in The Valley Library at the long, semi-circular counter to your right immediately as you enter the library.
Please contact the Clicker Team in order to schedule a TurningPoint training session.
