iClicker personal response systems (PRS) are handheld radio-frequency response devices that allow anonymous and specific polling and question-and-answer sessions in the classroom. The device transmits student responses to a receiver attached to an instructor's computer. The results can be displayed to the students or kept private. iClickers can be used in conjunction with presentation software such as PowerPoint or Keynote.
To get started with iClickers, submit a request at http://courses.brown.edu (at least two weeks prior to class use). You will be contacted to set up a consultation.
