What are Clickers?

The clickers are devices which allow an audience to respond to questions posed through a power point slide.  The clickers allow for an immediate response to the question and an automatically generated chart reflecting the responses to the question.


You will need:

  • A set of clickers (two sets of 30 are available for check out at the library)
  • Power Point
  • Download the TurningPoint 5 software

Note: TurningPoint 5 is a new version of the software.  If you upgrade to this version from a previous version your presentations will need to be upgraded, and once upgraded will not work with the older version of the software.  You will be prompted to upgrade slides if you change to the newer version.

  • TurningPoint 5
    Download the Polling Software for the type of computer you use. Typically this will be the PC Install version.
