Clickers are available for use in lectures requiring responses from students. Your students can now go to the RIC Bookstore and purchase an iClicker. Faculty need to reserve an instructor kit (one blue iClicker remote, receiver, and USB flash drive containing the iClicker and iGrader software for PC and MAC users) at the HelpDesk in Gaige Hall.
If you do not want to use the iClicker, but you still want to use a Reponse System then you can reserved PRS clickers from the Audio Visual department. However, the software and hardware must be installed and setup on the computer you will be using to create and display your PowerPoint slide deck.
