UVic now supports i>clicker, an electronic polling system that uses clickers, or "remotes." Students submit responses to multiple-choice questions, and a base station captures the responses. Two pieces of software are used to control polling sessions and display polling data. The i>clicker system is widely used by instructors to engage students in collaborative learning.
