i>clicker, one of the most widely used student response systems in higher education, today announced the release of i>clicker GO, a mobile response solution that transforms laptops, smartphones and tablets into student response devices. i>clicker GO is available for purchase at https://www.iclickergo.com or as an app from the iTunes and Google Play app stores.
i>clicker GO provides the simplicity and reliability that students and instructors have come to expect from i>clicker. The flexible system is compatible with classrooms already using i>clicker + and i>clicker 2 remotes, and gives students and professors the freedom to choose the response device that best works in their classroom. Whether that be a conventional remote or smart device, this unparalleled hybrid solution aims to meet the classroom needs of professors and students simultaneously.
“With i>clicker GO, students and professors now have a reliable, cost-effective solution that gives them the freedom of choice in the classroom that didn’t previously exist. On the same campus, professors can now standardize with one remote, or take a blended approach of mixed mobile and conventional remotes in their classrooms,” said Troy Williams, president of Macmillan New Ventures. “While increasing numbers of students own smart devices, access and availability of use is not ubiquitous across all campuses. Instructors must allow for device disparity, and i>clicker GO addresses the needs for all students and every classroom.”
The setup and activation of i>clicker GO is simple for both instructors and administrators, using the same i>clicker software for all products. Once enabled, instructors are free to ask multiple choice, numeric, and short answer questions by clicking a button on the i>clicker toolbar or their i>clicker instructor remote.
Features of i>clicker GO include:
- Runs on any Web-enabled device: iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Android Tablet, or laptop.
- Works with i>clicker + and i>clicker 2 remotes, giving students the choice of purchasing a clicker or using a smart device.
- Students login before a session starts, choose their instructor, select their course, and enjoy the convenience of quickly entering numeric and short answer responses using the smart device keyboard interface.
- Quickly gather student polling results and display for in class discussion, or export to Excel.
i>clicker GO will be available for $9.99 per student, per semester, or for $31.99 for four years.
