Audience Response Systems, or "clickers," are available for single-use loans from Tewchnology Services.
Simmons uses TurningPoint as our Audience Response System (ARS). The software, which integrates with PowerPoint, is installed on all classroom and lab computers.
Technology currently owns 1 ARS kit, which includes 60 clickers and a USB receiving antenna. The PowerPoint add-in software required to use the clicker system is already installed in all classrooms and labs.

Prior to using clickers at Simmons, faculty or staff must contact Application Support to schedule a 1-hour orientation session.
If you intend on using clickers for your classroom throughout the semester, we encourage you to order responders though the bookstore as you would for a required text. Due to the increase in demand for clickers, technology can no longer support ongoing or reoccurring loans of clickers for classes.
