About Clickers

Clickers and ResponseWare are two ways that students can use to  respond to interactive questions.

What are Clickers?

Clickers are hardware devices that allow students to participate in presentations or lectures by submitting responses to questions via a keypad.

What are Receivers?

Clickers communicate with a receiver in each classroom that is set to a specific channel. If you use your clicker in more than one class you may need to change the channel on your clicker at the beginning of class.

What is ResponseWare?

ResponseWare is software that allows you to use your smartphone or laptop to actively participate in class instead of using a clicker.

The UB wireless network may be insufficient to support all student ResponseWare connection attempts. UB recommends that students use clickers (ResponseCard models RF, XR or NXT).
