During the 2017 summer session on campus, BYU-Idaho changed their on-campus classroom response systems, known among students as iClickers. These small white remotes allowed students to interact with the teacher’s lessons in the form of attendance, tests, and other activities. For the Fall 2017 semester, BYU-Idaho changed the response systems to two online apps that functioned the same as a physical iClicker and could be downloaded onto phones, tablets, and computers at no cost to the students.
Like the I-Learn update, a web page was created on the BYU-Idaho website to inform students and faculty about the change. Along with informing the campus about the change and that the University Store would no longer be selling iClickers, the web page included information about what students could do with their old iClickers. They could be returned and redeemed for a gift card or sold elsewhere online. And like the I-Learn update, emails were sent out to students and faculty explaining the new update, with the information about what to do with old iClickers.
