Clickers Issues & Training

Service Overview

A clicker is a device that can integrate into a PowerPoint presentation and allow students to participate by submitting responses to questions and viewing immediate feedback. In turn, the presenter can engage students, assess learning, gather data and enhance the presentation. The current UNCW supported Clicker solution is TurningPoint. Clickers can be purchased in the UNCW Bookstore or online. Clickers can also be used as an alternative to Scantrons for a test taking environment, where students are still given a paper test and can answer at their own speed and order in the “Self-Paced Polling” environment.
