Getting and Using Clickers

About the Clickers

The TurningPoint "Clickers" are a light-weight card used to send responses to questions on a presentation. You can enter multiple choice answers as numbers or letters.

The "Clicker" uses two CR2032 (3.0V) Lithium Batteries with an average battery life of 6 to 12 months. The card has 12 keys, 1/A-10/J, 'Ch' and '?', which are used to automatically transmit responses.

Responses will be shown in the PowerPoint presentation. All responses are anonymous.

Getting clickers for MBA students

First-year fulltime MBA students are issued a Clicker through the Kresge Library at the start of the Fall term. Clickers can be returned to the library at the end of the term, or the loan can be renewed for the Winter term. You do not need to return them and then borrow them again at the start of the Winter term; simply fill out a loan renewal form at the Library. However, the Clickers cannot be renewed for the next academic year.

Getting clickers for non-MBA classes

While Clickers are only issued to first-year MBA students, Computing Services has Clickers available for loan on a per-class basis. Request the Clickers by sending an email to RossHelpdesk@umich.edu. There are a limited number available, so be certain to give as much advance notice as you can.
