Appalachian State University adopted iClicker as the preferred classroom student response system (SRS) on our campus beginning in Spring 2011. Originally, multi-faculty workshops were scheduled to familiarize faculty with the setup and deployment for classes of the new system, but current training is handled by Learning Technology Services (LTS) consultants via a scheduled classroom visit with the instructor to assure successful setup of the equipment. Technical support and support for integration and use of SRS within the AsULearn LMS is provided by LTS.
iClicker student remotes are distributed to students via the textbook rental system, thereby providing quantity discounts to the bookstore for purchasing remotes and base stations and allowing students to acquire remotes without incurring additional cost of purchase. Portable base stations are provided to faculty by LTS after contact by the instructor.
Faculty request iClicker access for classes by contacting the Bookstore textbook manager and providing the course name and number, section number and projected enrollment numbers for the section(s) - more information is available at http://lts.appstate.edu/requesting-iclickers.
