Intro to Clickers
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.

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:
