iCicker polling system

The iClicker Polling system can be used in a classroom to easily get responses from all your students.  After being asked a question and a given a set of possible responses, each student can use their remote to enter the response they think is correct.  Once everyone has responded, it is possible to display a graph of how the class answered.

Currently, the iClicker system is available for check out to Faculty and Staff of the Claremont Colleges.  The iClicker System can be checked out for a period of seven days and can be renewed once.

More information about the iclicker and instructions on how to use it can be found here.
