New Clicker System in the Fall

In Fall 2011 the UMass Amherst campus is switching from using eInstruction’s PRS clickers to i>clicker. Instructors will be pre-ordering i>clicker remotes through the Textbook Annex.

To stay up to date with announcements and information about the new i>clicker system please visit our new Audience Response System blog.

This August we will be offering introductory trainings to prepare folks for a smooth jump into the Fall 2011 semester. Join us for a hands-on workshop on setting up and using the i>clicker Audience Response System to pose questions and collect responses from your students

  • Wednesday, August 10, 2011 at 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
  • Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
  • Tuesday, August 23, 2011 at 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

The UMass Amherst campus is only supporting the i>clicker model 2, which has an LCD panel.
The cost for a new i>clicker2 remote will be $45.50 at the Textbook Annex. During the 2011/2012 academic year, UMass students who currently own an eInstruction PRS remote are eligible for a $10 rebate.

The Textbook Annex will not be buying back eInstruction PRS remotes.
We are setting-up a donation program for the old PRS devices (for those students who would like to give to a community cause), and will have donation boxes placed in locations around campus this fall.
