Classroom Response Systems
Clickers, sometimes referred to as a classroom response system, can be used in a variety of ways to increase student engagement. With clickers, instructors have the ability to assess learning, report student progress indicators and see measurable gains in retention and learning. Faculty interested in this technology may also choose to use simple polling software instead. View a quick polling software comparison.
- Provides an option for immediate feedback for both instructors and students
- Integration with Canvas

Costs vary for both instructor and student depending on the Clicker provider used.
Most Clicker providers will provide an instructor kit free of charge. If your Clicker provider has an integration with Canvas, please contact Information Technology Services at 402.554.4357 or unohelpdesk.unomaha.edu for assistance.
