Penn State Adopts a New Clicker System

After running a pilot program this past spring, Penn State has adopted the i> clicker system.

Criteria for the evaluation encompassed multiple components: cost, ease of use, product stability, support experiences, learning management system integration, vendor support, reporting capabilities, compliance with federal laws, and cross-platform support.

It should be noted that Penn State  tested the i>clicker against only one other system, but also had prior experience with another system.

"At Penn State, we needed a clicker system that was both easy to use and flexible enough to support our wide-ranging teaching methodologies," said Dave Test, a member of the university's technology classroom support organization. "With i>clicker, our faculty can easily implement clickers into their courses, adding myriad engagement opportunities with their students, but without the steep learning curve that we've experienced in the past. i>clicker gives us rock solid reliability and all of the features we need, without all of the headaches of other clicker systems."

Here is the article from Campus Technology.
