At IU, what options exist for student response devices?

In order to take advantage of new technologies, including integration with Oncourse and mobile devices, Indiana University has entered into an agreement with Turning Technologies. Instructors may use whatever products they choose in their classes, but formal integration into Oncourse will be exclusively with Turning Technologies. All options in the table below allow Oncourse integration.

All Turning Technologies options can work in the same classroom. Instructors may allow all of them or may require (or disallow) a specific option. There are no registration fees. Students in different classes may share devices.

For multiple classes requiring Turning Technologies clickers, you may be able to use the same device; see the table below.
