iClicker vs. TurningPoint

As with Turningpoint, iClicker allows for real-time feedback from students, and promotes active learning. iClicker works similarly to the anywhere polling option in Turningpoint rather than Turningpoint’s PowerPoint integration.  With iClicker, a toolbar floats above instructor content and allows them to ask multiple choice, short answer, numeric and target questions on the fly. Instructors do not input the text of questions into the clicker system ahead of time. If you have existing TurningPoint questions, you can continue to use the PowerPoint slides, although you may want to remove the bar graph.
