Clickers (Student Response System)

Student Response System (SRS) - Student clickers, lecturer remotes and lecturer base units


What is the Student Response System?

The Student Response System (SRS) is a wireless response system that allows lecturers to request information from students. Students respond by using a "clicker" (hand-held response pad) to send information to a receiver. When presented with a question, the student answers by pressing a button on their clicker, which sends an infrared signal to a receiver attached to a computer. The computer records and/or displays the student responses.

If you would like to use the SRS in your course, contact the Learning Environment Support Unit (LESU).
