What are Clickers used for?
Clickers are used in classes to facilitate interaction between students and the instructor. For example, instructors might conduct polling and question-and-answer sessions via PowerPoint through the clicker system.
Purchasing a Clicker
If a course you are registered in requires you to purchase a clicker, it will typically be listed under the Required Textbooks section of the registration page as "Response Card", "RF Device" or something similar.
You can purchase a clicker three ways:
At the UW Bookstore
Online: Go to Turning Technologies' Website. For a discount, use the University of Washington School Purchase Code: 9mF5
If you are selling a clicker you have used to another student, or if you are purchasing a used clicker from another student, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
The name of the person who originally owned the clicker (whether that is you or the person you bought it from)
The Device ID on the back of the Turning Technologies Response Card that looks like this <insert image of the device ID used elsewhere>
Note: the same clicker can be reused for different classes.
First time using clickers in a class? Check out the steps below to register your clicker with the class. Your instructor will specify when to use your clickers in class.
NOTE: These steps are for classes at UW Bothell that explicitly require students to purchase a personal response device (clicker) for a course they are registered in.
Steps for Registering your Clicker
Go to your course's Canvas website
Under Modules, click on the link to 'Turning Technologies Registration Tool'
Enter your Device ID and the captcha code
For Device ID, enter the six digit number on the back of the clicker.
Note: once you register your Clicker decive through Canvas, you do not need to register again for a future class.
