A wiki is a collaborative website where students can post text, images, links, videos, polls, charts, anything that can go on the web. It allows students to work in groups to showcase their research and share with others in the class. The department maintains the campus-wide license to Wikispaces.
Many faculty are incorporating multimedia into student projects. The office can work with you to develop a video assignment. Students have access to Macs with iMovie in Academic Media Services and the Phillips Memorial Library for editing work.
The clicker is a handheld device that a student uses to register an answer to a question posed in class. Clicker results can be anonymous or linked to each student for grading purposes. This office provides the hardware and software for using clickers, as well as consultation on how and why to use them in your class.
