Social Networking at UW: Presentation to ITAC

Presentation to UCIST Results from ITAC subgroup (Shawn Gilbertson, Mark Morton, Andrea Chappell) April 3rd 2008 Clicker Recommendations Support the use of one clicker, the iClicker brand. Support will include

Technology Installation (if required) of receiver, and support of the use in the e-classrooms (IST). Pedagogy Best practise of use (CTE). Training and documentation (IST). Distribution and resale (Bookstore). During next two years, track alternatives (e.g., PDAs). Be prepared to recommend continued support for iClicker, other brand or solution.

Special note Recommending one brand is not the same as endorsing or promoting the use of clickers; rather, recognition of responsibility for existing activity. Factors in evaluation Impact on learning and on teaching Current usage Usability issues

Accessibility issues Impact on technical support Costs Factors in choosing iClicker Usage Two brands in use, eInstructions CPS, and iClicker No individual user had strong preference Fall 2006, UW Bookstore agreed to purchase

used iClickers. Perhaps coincidence, but more iClickers than CPS units have been sold since Fall 2006. Fall 2007 1100 CPS; 1700 iClicker Winter 2008 110 CPS; 997 iClicker (includes used) WLU also uses iClicker Factors in choosing iClicker (2) Usability issues

CPS supports numeric input and LED screens, iClicker does not; initially flagged as possibly important factor, but subsequently deemed not a show stopper Registration of units to student CPS requires course-by-course registration fees iClicker does not have such a fee, and this is seen as a significant benefit Factors in choosing iClicker (3)

Accessibility OPD states that a clicker without a display, and with large and tactile buttons, would be preferable. iClicker is the better option here Next Steps UCIST discuss recommendation and plan Contact professors through Liaisons Assess any needs for assistance in switching

Assess where needed in upcoming terms Identify any problems Inform iClicker and eInstruction of decision, and request test set from iClicker Install in classrooms where first required Set ready date
