Presentation Transcript


1. Welcome Students! In this course we will be using iClicker: an easy-to-use classroom response system to conduct real-time polling. Why is a clicker required for my class? Like many instructors, yours has decided (and studies have confirmed) that incorporating this technology improves classroom interaction, discussion, and ultimately your and your fellow students’ comprehension and learning.

3. How does it work? Questions are posed in class. Use your personal remote to answer A,B,C,D, or E. Results are automatically tallied and displayed anonymously to the entire class. You receive points for participating and/or answering correctly. All of the above!

4. Here’s what you need: A personal iClicker student remote (purchased stand-alone at the bookstore). Unlike other clicker systems on the market, this is a low-cost system that you can use in as many courses as needed at no additional charge or additional registration fees!!!!!

5. Before you begin: 1. Once you remove a new clicker from its packaging, pull out the clear plastic tab from the back – this will activate the batteries. Are there zeros or the letter O in my clicker ID? Your clicker ID may contain the number zero, but will not contain the letter O. How long will my batteries last? The battery life is approximately 200 hours. The “Low Battery” light will flash red when you need to replace your batteries. Once this light begins flashing, you have less than 10 hours of battery power remaining. Your clicker uses 3 AAA batteries, which are inexpensive to replace. New i>clicker remotes include 3 AAA batteries. How do I change my batteries? On the back of your i>clicker is a small slot. You will need to insert a paperclip or similar device (such as the clasp on a pen) to release the covering, allowing you to remove and replace the batteries. What if I forget to turn off my i>clicker? The clicker will remain on for 90 minutes as long as there is an activated base in your classroom. If you leave class and forget to turn off your clicker, it will automatically turn off after 5 minutes. In fact, it will automatically turn itself off even if a particular button is being continually compressed. Are there zeros or the letter O in my clicker ID?

6. iClicker is easy… There is also a “low light” indicator when batteries are low (usually do not need to be replaced). How long will my batteries last? The battery life is approximately 200 hours.

7. No need to even point (like a TV remote) – this system will receive your answer. If you change your mind, just enter another answer (you can change your mind as long a time has not run out). Individual answers will be saved to the instructor’s gradebook. Points are generally given for answering: Have prof explain how points / participation / attendance will be used for what % of the classes total grade.

9. Clicker does have auto-shut off to conserve power. What if I forget to turn off my i>clicker? The clicker will remain on for 90 minutes as long as there is an activated base in your classroom. If you leave class and forget to turn off your clicker, it will automatically turn off after 5 minutes.

11. “Registering” your clicker online Register your student ID and clicker ID as advised by your instructor. There are two ways and you will only need to do this ONCE for the semester if you keep your same clicker. WEB REGISTRATION (profs needs to set up in their course Preferences). Prof needs to tell students WHAT ID to use to match up to their regualr gradebook (student ID, BB or WevCT ID, other ID) IN-Class REGISTRATION (roll call feature) STUDENT NOTE: Register as soon as you can, but you can use iclicker right out of the package. If use your clicker in class before you’re registered, your previously responses WILL be retroactively assigned to you! FAQ: I registered online but my professor says I have not registered yet. This could be caused by two possible factors: Have you voted in class with your remote yet? If you have not voted with your i-clicker remote, the online registration will not synchronize your registration with your professor’s gradebook. You must vote at least once in class. You may also have entered the incorrect i>clicker remote ID or the wrong student ID. Re-register online and the incorrect information will simply be ignored.

12. “Registering” your clicker in class PROF MUST HAVE .TXT file ROSTER LOADED “Roll call” will scroll student IDs in the roster – when students SEE their ID, click the letter next to their name (blue area), and then do it again to confirm in the green area. Once they’re in the clicker roster, their name will DROP OFF the “roll call” list. FAQ: I use my i>clicker remote for multiple classes with different professors? Do I have to register for each individual class? No! You only need to register once and your registration information will apply to all of the classes for which you are using i>clicker (provided you have voted with your remote in each class). Exception: the one point of possible confusion is if your instructors are using different student IDs to record your grades. Make sure you consult with your professors about the proper student ID required when you register online.

See how I compare to other students in class. All of the above. Run a question – use your remote to answer if students don’t have theirs yet.
