Student Comments

"I like using iClickers in my psych class. I wish my philosophy professor would show us videos and pictures that relate to what we discuss."

"Watching movie clips in my communication class helps me identify and apply concepts I learn in the course. Having more media usage in my political science class would help me become engaged during the lecture."
