Classroom Response Systems (clickers)

Classroom Response Systems (CRS) are becoming essential technologies in the traditional classroom. The Classroom Response System is especially useful for medium-sized and large-sized classes (30+ students) where it is not feasible to hear directly from a majority of students.

Most common CRS activities: attendance, ungraded polls, scored questions
