KOLT Classroom Response Systems (Clickers)

Classroom Response Systems, also known as “clickers” are used to facilitate interactive learning in the classroom. In clicker systems, each student uses an individual remote control to respond to questions posed by the instructor in the lecture. The responses appear immediately on the instructor’s computer and can be displayed to the students. If a clicker is registered to a student, then the instructor has the option of tracking student responses and assigning students credit for participation.

KOLT has 6 sets of 32 CPS Pulse clickers. Instructors can request clicker systems to use in their classes without requiring students to buy them.

To request a clicker system, please contact KOLT Educational Technologists or e-mail kolt@ku.edu.tr.
