Access the Clicker Registration  

Instructors may choose to use Clickers in the classroom. Clickers allow you to participate in polls, engage in class competitions and games, and provide feedback to your instructor. Some instructors also use clickers for quizzing and testing. 

Your instructor will let you know if you need to use a clicker for their class.


Changes to the Clicker Registration Process

Students need the following 3 things in order to receive credit for using a clicker in their class: SUBSCRIPTION; CLICKER and REGISTER THROUGH BOLT.


How is this different from before? Previously you just needed to have a clicker and had to just register the device ID. Now you will need to obtain a subscription in addition to the device ID. You will need to register both the device ID and subscription code with your Turning Account.


What is my Turning Account? The software we use for clickers is provided by a company named Turning Technologies. They recently moved everything to the 'cloud' and this requires everyone to create a 'Turning Account' in order to use clickers in the classrooms. Both students and instructors will need to have Turning Accounts.


How can I create my Turning Account? You MUST create your Turning Account via the link in BOLT. It is available in the 'Student Clicker Registration' widget, or as a link in the University  Resources menu.


How do I know if I need a clicker? Your instructor will let you know if you need a clicker for class. Not all classes require clickers.


What if I am a new student or an existing student who needs to purchase a clicker for the first time? You will need to purchase a clicker AND a subscription code. They are sold as a bundle both online or at the bookstore. The best purchase option for new students is to buy the 5 year bundle.


Do I need a bundle if I already have a device/clicker? No, you can just purchase a subscription. Use the Clicker Registration link in BOLT and then click the 'Purchase Subscription' button.


Where can I purchase a clicker/device and subscription? You can purchase them online or at the bookstore. All information regarding clickers can be found on the My Home Page in BOLT. Log in to BOLT and you will see a widget named 'Student Clicker Registration'. Information on where to buy the clicker and license as well as directions on how to register your clicker can be found here.
