Student Response Systems (Clickers)

Note: RTL is piloting Poll Everywhere and iClicker Cloud this fall at no cost to students or instructors. Email clickers@berkeley.edu to get started with either tool.

About Clickers

Student Response Systems, also known as “Clickers,”  “audience response systems,” and "classroom response systems," enable instructors to pose questions to students and immediately collect and view the responses of the entire class. Their many uses include increasing student engagement, obtaining real-time feedback, and taking attendance. Many of these systems integrate with bCourses, enabling instructors to easily record student participation in their gradebooks.

RTL is running pilots of iClicker Cloud and Poll Everywhere in Fall 2021. These virtual systems provide flexibility in case of a pivot in mode of instruction, and allow students to participate at no cost via apps on their personal devices (laptop, tablet, or cell phone). To get started, contact clickers@berkeley.edu. Faculty and GSIs can request 1:1 consultations via Calendly.
