Liberty University prides itself on providing state-of-the-art technology for its students, faculty, and staff. Technological innovation is especially important when it comes to facilitating learning in the classroom. Recently, faculty have begun to use audience response systems, or ‘clickers,’ in their courses. These systems allow students to respond instantaneously, thereby making polls, surveys, and quizzes a breeze.
Educational benefits include:
Liberty University has selected Turning Technologies as the sole audience response solution (clickers) for our faculty, staff, and students. Turning Technologies is a global leader in the field of audience response, accumulating numerous awards for their innovative audience response solutions. Organizations such as Johnson & Johnson, Hewlett Packard, the McDonald’s Corporation and over half of all U.S. colleges and universities currently use their technology.
Turning Technologies was selected with both faculty and student in mind. Faculty will enjoy the aforementioned educational benefits, while students will benefit from a system geared towards maximizing learning while also minimizing cost.
Benefits of Turning Technologies:
Faculty can request a complimentary Clicker and Receiver from Liberty University IT Training and Testing, as well as training on the clicker system provided by interns from Turning Technologies. Faculty that desire to incorporate Clickers into their courses should notify their department head and the Liberty Bookstore before submitting their textbook order for the following semester.
Clickers are available for purchase through the Liberty Bookstore. Students are encouraged to keep their clicker throughout their college career; however, if students wish to sell their clicker, the Liberty Bookstore will buy-back used clickers in a fashion similar to textbooks.
