is a radio frequency device that allows a student to anonymously
respond to questions your instructor poses in class. This lets you

material. Students purchase their iClicker through the Manoa bookstore
and can use the same iClicker over their entire academic career in
any course that uses iClicker with no additional registration fees.
In addition, they
will be able to sell their clicker back to the Manoa bookstore at the
end of the year as part of the bookstore buy-back program.
