Clickers

If your professor has indicated in the class syllabus, email or otherwise that clickers will be used in the class, then you will need a clicker device.

Below is the information you will need to purchase the correct clicker device, set it up and be ready to go when classes begin.

The University of Idaho College of Law uses three physical clicker devices: Turning Technologies NXT, QT and QT2.

Some courses at the College of Law allow you to use ResponseWare. This is a software solution that allows you to download an app or access a webpage on your phone, tablet or computer to answer clicker questions.

If you are in a class with a professor teaching locally, then a physical clicker will typically be what you use. However, if you are in a distance class then you will need to use ResponseWare.

Some professors require the physical clicker. Ask your professor or check their syllabus to determine the best solution for you.

Before using a clicker or ResponseWare, you will need to set up your Turning Account. To do this:

  1. First log into Blackboard Learn
  2. Select the course you need a clicker for.
  3. Click the “Clicker Registration” link in the left-hand column. 
  4. This will prompt you to set up your Turning Account (using your @vandals email) and link it with your Blackboard Learn account.

Physical clickers can be purchased at the Vandal Bookstore or online through the Turning Student Store. After creating your Turning Account by following the instructions above, login to your account by going to account.turningtechnologies.com. Once logged in click the “Student Store” link. This will take you to the student store.

Purchasing a Turning Account License will include the use of ResponseWare. Once your turning account is created and you redeem a Turning Account License you will be able to use ResponseWare or a physical clicker if you have one.

NOTE:

For the Fall 2016 semester, returning 2L and 3L students who have already purchased a clicker will receive a voucher for a free Turning Account License. Also, incoming 1L students will receive a voucher in the packing when purchasing a physical clicker from the VandalStore. The Turning Account License must be registered even if you are using a physical clicker.

To register a clicker, you will first need to:

  1. Log into Blackboard Learn
  2. Select the course that requires a clicker. 
  3. Click on the “Clicker Registration” link. 
  4. This will take you to the Turning Technologies Device Registration page. On this page you will need to select the device you wish to register. 
  5. Select the “License” link and then select "Add a License".
  6. Once you have entered the correct information click “Register.”
  7. Select the "Manage Response Devices” link then select "Add a Device". 
  8. You will now be prompted to enter the Device ID for your clicker. This is located on the back of the clicker. 
  9. Once you have entered the correct Device ID click “Register.” If successful, you will receive a message saying your device has been registered.

NOTE:

You must register your Turning Account License in order to use the physical clicker. Your clicker will be linked to your Blackboard Learn account. You will only need to register the clicker once, and it will be usable in any of your classes.

To register ResponseWare, you will first need to: 

  1. Log into Blackboard Learn
  2. Select the course that requires a clicker 
  3. Click on the “Clicker Registration” link. 
  4. This will take you to the Turning Technologies Device Registration page. On this page you will need to select the device you wish to register. 
  5. Select the “License” link and then select "Add a License".
  6. Once you have entered the correct information click “Register.”

NOTE:

Your copy of ResponseWare will be linked to your Blackboard Learn account. You will only need to register the software once, and it will be usable in any of your classes.

With a physical clicker, you will need to select the correct clicker channel, which will be provided by your professor. Then simply input your answer.

If you are using ResponseWare, you will need to log into the application or go to the ResponseWare website and login with your Turning Technologies account. From the application or website you will need to enter the appropriate session id provided by your professor. Then simply input your answer.

In order to avoid technical issues during clicker questions, it is generally a good idea to get your clicker logged in and on the correct channel at the beginning of class. That way it is ready when the professor starts a clicker question.
