Audience Response Systems (“Clickers”)


Audience response systems allow students to actively participate in classes and presentations. Presenters can use a software application to ask questions; audience members respond using an application (“app”) on their smart phone, tablet, or laptop. Students may also use a small hand-held device or (“clicker”) to respond.

Audience Response Systems can be used to:

  • Help make learning more interactive.
  • Encourage honest feedback about controversial subjects using anonymous polling.
  • Quickly assess student comprehension enabling intervention if key concepts are not clear.
  • Use student responses as a foundation for classroom discussion.
  • UA faculty and student comments about clicker use.
