Welcome to the Colorado State University Clicker Website


Clickers allow instructors to ask questions and gather students' responses during a lecture. Clicker systems are also commonly called Classroom Response Systems, or Audience Response Systems.

In clicker systems, each student uses a device, a "clicker", that looks like a TV remote to answer questions posed by the instructor. Summaries of student responses can be shown in real time to both instructors and students. Answers are stored electronically for later viewing.
