Student Response System (aka "Clickers")
What are Clickers?
Clickers allow you to poll your audience during a powerpoint presentation and receive instant feedback. The software works with PC and Mac versions of Powerpoint. By inserting special slides into your presentation, you can guage comprehension, engage the audience in the material, and quiz to determine retention.
