Clickers in the Classroom

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 upgraded to TurningPoint 8 software and the new QT2 Device in fall 2017. Student devices (QT and QT2) will work in your classes alongside ResponseWare/Mobile App.

The new software is installed in all general purpose classrooms. Students may need to purchase a device or subscription. Visit the Student Resources page for more details.

A list of frequently asked questions is outlined below to clarify what these changes mean for NDSU faculty and students.

Online and face-to-face training options are available to help faculty learn how to use the new software.

If you have questions or are interested in using Turning Technologies clickers or mobile in your classes, please contact us.
