Audience Response Clickers
Available to hire from CiCS is a group response system that can gather instant responses, feedback and choices from an audience of up to six hundred people. If you need personal training, please contact your department, Faculty or CiCS learning technologists.
Group response systems create interactivity between a presenter and the audience. You use a computer and a projector to present a series of Powerpoint slides to your audience. Each slide is built within the audience response software, and displays a question with multiple choice answers.
Each member of the audience uses a wireless keypad to indicate their answer. The answers are sent to a base station, which is connected to your computer. The software collects the results and displays them for all to see.
Data can be collected anonymously or, for exams, you can make each handset traceable to an individual. You can include questions about your audience´s age and gender etc, and then later perform demographic analyses of their responses.
The data is stored in a database, so you can return at a later date to perform further analyses. You can even award points or weighting to different answers in order to measure the audience´s understanding of a subject.
The graphical results can be saved as a standalone presentation and can be published on your website.
