Clickers are audience-response tools that provide instructors with instant feedback from students. Faculty pose questions to students in class, then students respond with their clicker remote or mobile device. Responses are recorded and can be viewed in class at the faculty’s discretion. Faculty are able to select correct answers and integrate with eCampus.
The campus standard for clickers at WVU are through the i>clicker vendor. Having a campus standard keeps costs for students lower and allows the device or subscription to be used in more than one course and/or semester and available through the bookstore.
