ATG is partnering with Turning Technologies to support instructors interested in using clickers for in-class polling in their FAS courses. Students have the option of either purchasing a so-called ResponseWare license (6, 12, or 48 month options available) to use their web browser or mobile device to respond to questions or purchasing a physical clicker. There is no cost for instructors. They can get the software directly on the Turning Technologies website and the necessary hardware (Radio Frequency receivers) from ATG.
This page provides basic information on how to get started. If you have any questions at any time, just contact us in one of the ways described on the "Contact ATG" page (see link on the left or at the bottom of this page).
Examples of Harvard FAS Courses Using Turning Technologies
See links to course websites below (not a comprehensive list). Syllabi will often include information on how clickers are used in class (including their contributions, if at all, to grading). Unless otherwise noted, most recent course offerings will have the most updated information. Note also that some of these course websites may be restricted.
