University of TorontoLaurie Harrison & Avi HymanBlackboard CollaborateiClickerCamtasia Relay; Echo360
Carleton UniversityPatrick LyonsBig Blue ButtonTurningPointMostly pleased. Some bugginess with software and cost a concern. Student cost per device $50. Support good. Looking into polleverywhere.com which is cheap, uses cell phone text messages and so far, works well.
University of OttawaMark GareauunknownCPS eInstruction RF Gen2 and Gen3 (Pulse)Extremely pleased-over 1800+ users. The only problem we have had over the years has been this past year when there were ‘bugs’ in the software which created shutdowns, etc. It seems to have cleared up now with the software updates…We are also looking closely at their virtual clicker app that makes sense and is less costly to the student.We also have Echo360 lecture capture on campus serving 23 installed classrooms as well as personal capture on MDS laptops. We have links to our Blackboard and, although at first it was slow to take off, it is finally being used by profs and other services.

University of GuelphAdobe ConnectSupporting iClickerUsing them for 3.5 years. ~4,000 in circulation. Faculty appreciate the ease of use. Some dissatisfaction with the five choice limit. Some faculty (4 or 5), are using Top Hat Monocle, an app for laptop, smartphone etc. No enterprise solution. Individual faculty use Camtasia.
UOITBrad CarsonunknownResponseWare TurningPoint virtual clickers So far the faculty response has been pretty positive, a way to get students engaged. We have a 500 seat license here at UOIT for the TurningPoint virtual clicker software, which was upped from a 350 seat license last year
University of WaterlooPaul KatesAdobe ConnectiClickerUsing for nearly three years now (i.e. it is the clicker supported by our IST). Faculty to the students to the bookstore (which actually sells it and buys back used ones from students) is very happy with it.
