This Spring, ITS will be piloting two clicker systems to determine which best suits the University as our standardized clicker system. The two clicker systems chosen for the pilot are listed below. Instructors and classes will be asked to use one of these systems for the Spring 2011 semester.
Students enrolled in the classes that are participating in the pilot will be loaned a clicker free-of-charge for the semester.
For more information on clickers at Penn State, please email clickers [at] psu [dot] edu.
