A clicker, or student response system, is a tool for active learning in the classroom through 100% student participation in question-and-answer sessions.


NDSU has a campus wide license for Turning Technologies as our personal response solution, which utilizes clickers and/or your electronic device. It provides an easy way to actively engage your students in your lectures or conduct surveys and quizzes. Results can be displayed in real time to encourage discussion or can be uploaded into your Blackboard Grade Center.
