Hello, Tony,
	My name is Jasmine, and I have used the Clicker system 
before.  It would be nice to have a Clicker system for those of 
us who are unable to see! I would be extremely interested!!

Subject: [nobe-l] Sonic Clickers project


My name is Tony Stockman, I am a blind lecturer in Computer 
Science at Queen Mary University of London, UK.  You may well 
know that Clickers is the name given to systems used to provide 
feedback to teachers on how their class is going.  The teacher 
can ask students to vote on an issue, or simply indicate how well 
they are currently understanding the taught material.  Some 
systems offer a wide choice of different types of feedback.  The 
feedback from these systems is presented visually, often in the 
form of a graph.  One of my final year undergraduate students is 
currently developing a version of a Clicker system for use by 
blind or partially sighted teachers.  I would be delighted to 
hear from anyone on the list who may be interested in such a 
system, including potentially trialling it when it is developed.  
Assuming the development goes well, it will be made available for 
free at the end of the project.  We would of course like to know 
if anyone is aware of any similarly accessible Clicker systems 
that have already been developed.  I am attaching a brief article 
on Clicker systems for anyone who is new to them who would like 
to read more details.

Kind regards,
