Clicker FAQs

A receiver is necessary to do polling - IT will place a receiver in your classroom if your room has a seating capacity of 50 or over. If you are interested in using clickers and your classroom seats under 50, consider applying for a mini-technology grant through your College, or talk with your department chair about funding. Also, don't forget to ask your College Support person if there is a receiver already installed in the room.

The software, TurningPoint 2008, is free and can be installed on your office computer from the Network menu. This linked documentation  contains the Network menu path. The documentation also contains information on how you can test your polling presentations in your office without a receiver by using simulated data.
