Pros: iClicker allows for a more engaging classroom experience between students and teachers. I strongly feel that utilizing this resource in classes creates a stronger learning experience and greatly benefits students during lectures.

Cons: Many professors struggle with adapting to this software. While it is useful and easy once you get the hang of it, the initial understanding of the program seems to take some time with staff.

Pros: It helps students become more engaged in class and to help reinforce concepts. It is a good way to check for understanding of the materials.

Cons: It is a little expensive for students to purchase the iClickers because students have to have their own individual clickers in class. Responses are only limited to multiple choice questions and cannot enter in free response.

Pros: This was great technology for the classroom. They were cheap and easy to use, both for students and professors. It made classes interactive and good for going over possible test questions and hypotheticals. Good for debate and collaboration.

Cons: Out of classes of hundreds of people, maybe a few clickers went bad. Could have been the battery life.

Pros: I like that you can create any type of questions to use the iClicker system with. You can use this as an educational tool to help quiz people on questions that they should know and memorize or simply use it as a voting tool for surveys.

Cons: The software itself is okay but the Clicker itself is a little expensive since every single person needs one to participate.

Pros: There are multiple ways to engage with students using this. The remotes themselves, while they function well, are pricey and very basic in their use. Other methods of engagement such as through the app are better.

Cons: Functionality is very basic with the remote, especially for the cost of the product. For something as expensive as it is I would like more functionality than just a few buttons for responses.

Pros: - allows for testing of knowledge within a large group/class (like Kahoot, but better)

- provides immediate feedback regarding responses

- allows for different options of multiple choice questions or short answer

Cons: - pausing the lecture to vote takes away from class time, using time and energy to reconnect to iClicker and vote
