ResponseWare:

ResponseWare allows students to use their mobile devices that operate on iOS (Apple), Android, Blackberry, or PalmOS platforms, as response devices ("Clickers") for an interactive class session. Devices must be able to access Wi-Fi or their phone service provider to participate successfully.

To get started you will need to request an account by contacting your College Instructional Designer or the FDIS office. You will use that account to obtain a Session ID.  A Session ID is similar to a channel on the Clicker. You have the option of reserving a permanent ID or choosing a new ID for each session. Session IDs can be created in two ways:

Once you've obtained a Session ID you can share that information with your students so they can join the session.
