Student Response Systems (SRS)

Student Response Systems (SRS) also known as "clickers" are small hand held devices coupled with receiving hardware and presentation software. The system allows an instructor to present questions, usually via a computer projector, and collect student answers immediately during the lecture. The results can generally be manipulated and displayed immediately and can be used to change the course of the lecture.

Emerging literature on the use of this technology suggest that students are more engaged in learning in courses utilizing SRS. Turning Technologies are the supported SRS technology at UMD.
