We built our own in house that uses Google Apps as the backside. It only works in house; that is, I can't create a poll and offer it to the whole world (yet). I can put you in touch with the creator if you'd like me to.

Ohio University has used TurningPoint for approximately 10 years and Top Hat Monocle for several years in some departments.  The TurningPoint solution uses dedicated clickers which cost around $32 each which we sell and offer to buy back from students.  We do not offer a cell phone client for TurningPoint, although we have looked at the cell phone product.  Some faculty prefer that students not use a cell phone in class as it encourages texting and for these faculty, the TurningPoint solution has significant appeal.

 

Top Hat Monocle uses mobile devices such as cell phones to respond.  Faculty in some disciplines within Arts and Sciences really like the student question banks that are available with the product.  I don’t have pricing information for Top Hat.

At UIC College of Medicine, we use i>clickers. We can't guarantee a decent wireless or smartphone/tablet signal so we have bases in the lecture halls where clickers are being used. I have used Poll Everywhere and I like it, but until the signals are better... plus I think our administration is hesitant to use something like Poll Everywhere because in essence you are forcing all students to have a phone of some sort. Everyone is thinking - um, everyone has a phone. About 1% of our students don't have a phone that could be used in this way, so instead they make them buy i>clickers. Hmmm. :-)

Here at Fairfield U. we’ve had 100 - 125 Turning Point clickers for probably five or six years that we’ve rotated amongst our faculty. In addition, our Nursing program has had their majors buy their own Turning Point devices at times, though they’ve ceased that by now. Since my staff and I are actively encouraging faculty to make use of the mobile devices that our students have, we’re recommending Socrative for quick and simple polls/quizzes and Poll Everywhere for more feature-rich use. Folks seem very happy with these options, especially Socrative because it’s so easy to use.

Butler University has been using Poll Everywhere but this semester have launched a pilot of Tophat which has a $20.00 student license. At this point it is too early to say what the outcome of our investigation will be. Julianne **************** Julianne M.

We are primarily using i>Clicker (10,000+ course enrollments per semester) and are using the web/app-based i>ClickerGO on a small scale. Both are working very well and we are happy with the support. We also have some classes using Top Hat (around 2200 students/semester) and have not had reports of major problems. Their support is also very good.

Subject: [INSTTECH] Student Response Systems

Hello All-

Educators here at our institution have been inquiring about student response, “clicker” technology again, asking about cost, feasibility, etc.

I have recommended “Poll Everywhere”, which uses the student’s own cell phones (hence no small tech devices disappearing from the classrooms…), as well as real time web results display.

Does anyone in the listserve have input on this? Is your institution using a solution you recommend, and can you share cost information?

Thanks, as always.

Kurt,

we offer the web-based classroom response systems "PINGO" for free.

We already have about a thousand satisfied instructors worldwide who use the system. PINGO comes free of charge, is very easy to use, there is no installation requiered and you have different question types that you may use (single choice, muliple choice, free text, numerical/guess questions). We offer convenient question import from Moodle XML and other learning management environments. In addition, you may export the questions to be used in other tools. And just in case you are interested to host PINGO on your own: We will make PINGO available as open source in the next few weeks. Just register, try it out and see whether it fits with what you need. We do not have any commercial interest - we are just happy to serve the teaching community. If you have feedback for improving PINGO, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Dennis

Hi Kurt,

 

Here is some additional information on clickers and options out there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, thank you.

Colorado College has a couple iClicker2 sets and I've heard of a couple faculty who use Poll Everywhere, though there are several software or web-based alternatives. I especially like Socrative and Infuse Learning; also Colorado School of Mines has the InkSurvey tool they've been developing since the XP-based tablet PCs came out - http://ticc.mines.edu/csm/survey.php

Clicker use/interest has seen an uptake this year, but we won't be buying new hardware clickers, though they are suited for certain situations. We have a few classes that are held in the human anatomy lab, where it is close to illegal to bring devices with cameras, so that eliminates smartphones, most iPod touches and modern tablets and laptops (with cameras).


For each iClicker set, I think we paid between $2K and $3K. Most teachers use them for quick in-class feedback, though I've been working with one teacher who wants to use the grading options.


Let me know if you want more info!

We have just adopted iClicker GO as a mobile polling option. We have been using iClicker for several years, and students with clickers still have the option to use them. Additionally, students who do not have a smart phone or other mobile / SMS access can use clickers instead of a phone. I believe the cost to the student is $9.99 / semester.

Greetings all,

 

At the Columbia Business School, we have Turning Point receivers deployed in all classrooms and we distribute clickers to most of our students.  We have found the solution both reliable and scalable.  We are currently piloting their smartphone “ResponseWare” solution with good results thus far.
