Interested in Borrowing Clickers for a Semester?

New Clicker kit loaner policy (effective Spring semester 2013)

Clicker kits consist of student clickers, a base station, and a USB cable and are available for short-term or semester loan. Academic Technologies has enough clickers to accommodate short-term faculty needs. For faculty interested in the semester-loan option, please contact us prior to the start of the semester so that an order can be placed with the vendor in a timely manner. At the end of the semester, the faculty collect the clickers from students and return the clicker kit. If a clicker is lost, the student will be billed $50 (or current clicker value, whichever is larger) to her/his bursar account. Broken clickers will be replaced at no cost.

Faculty using clickers in their course are encouraged to provide students with the following information in the syllabus:“Clickers will be used in this class.  As Skidmore College believes in providing students with the best pedagogical practices possible, clickers are made available to students at no student cost.  The instructor will lend a clicker, provided by Academic Technologies, to the student at the start of the term.  If a clicker breaks, a replacement will be provided at no cost.  Lost clickers will be replaced, but will result in a charge to the student of $50 to his/her bursar account.”
