Via Response bring your own device clicker software to test in your classroom
Free software test- faculty and adjuncts
Lehman College has been invited to a free one semester test pilot of Via Response, the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) cloud-based software that operates much like the hardware based ‘clicker’ personal response system. A recent college-wide survey illustrates that browser-based so-called ‘smart’ phones are becoming ubiquitous on our campus and that nearly all students now use them, so instead of having to purchase hardware through tech fee funds, we can support Via response, which utilizes students’ own smart phone, tablet or laptop to access questions that you’ve pre-submitted via the internet. Via supports a broad array of question types, including multiple choice, free text response, numerical response, even ‘on the fly’ and anonymous questions. For an invitation to join us in this test pilot, see the attached document labeled Lehman Test Pilot – ViaResponse. An explanation for why clickers are a valuable teaching tool see attache document ‘why are we using clickers?’
Those who want to participate in this free test pilot can contact me via the link below by February 8. I look forward to hearing from you!

About Alyson Vogel
I started in education 10 years ago starting a media center and television studio for students in District Ten in the Bronx. Middle school students and teachers were introduced to media and media literacy projects designed for active learning in real world contexts. For the past 5 years I have been an academic program developer, coach and workshop leader. I have significant expertise in course design, curriculum planning, online teaching, training, coaching & mentoring and major event logistics & execution.
My emphasis is on integrating the Internet and new media into teaching and learning. My background in television and radio, teaching teachers in K-12 through Higher Education, professional life coaching, and yes, even my newly acquired professional chef skills brings depth to my latest position of Associate Director of Online Education at Lehman College. I am very excited to be among this group of professionals to take my understanding of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning to even greater heights.
