Clickers in the Classroom

A Student Response System (clickers) is a tool that assists faculty in generating student engagement, quickly completing quizzes, in taking role, etc. The University of Colorado Denver supports i>clicker. Students purchase their clicker at the Auraria bookstore. Clickers should be ordered at the same time faculty place book orders. The i>clicker company provides a free reciever to faculty with classes with more than 100 enrolled students. CU Online has a small number of receiver units to loan on a semester-by-semester basis; contact david.paul@ucdenver.edu

  • For the Spring 2014 semester, CU Online is assuming the responsibility for coordinating the iClicker audience response system at the Downtown Campus. The fall receiver should be returned to the Center for Faculty Development (LSC Suite 320), but new units should be reserved with CU Online (David.Paul@ucdenver.edu) help desk (303) 724-7716, and will be picked up at the CU Online Help Desk on the 12th floor of the Lawrence Street Center (Suite 1200). Students will continue to purchase clickers at the Auraria Campus Bookstore. This change will consolidate the audience response administration on the downtown and AMC campuses.  The AMC currently uses a different system. In the future, we hope to look into selecting a single system that will meet the needs of both campuses.  You will be contacted at that time and will be encouraged to participate in the selection process.  No decision will be made without faculty input. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact David Paul, (david.paul@ucdenver.edu) or 303 724-7716
