Clickers In Classrooms

The audience response system or “Clickers”, TurningPoint, is now available in each of the School of Law classrooms. Professors using the classroom PC do not need to bring a Clicker Receiver to class. Professors simply need to open their PowerPoint presentation on the classroom PC via TurningPoint.

Students need to tune their Clickers to the correct channel for the classroom, as noted on a sign in each classroom:

channel list

Used for informal Q&A, attendance and assessment purposes, professors can easily integrate multiple choice or True/False questions directly into their PowerPoint slides using the TurningPoint software.  Students then submit their “anonymous” responses on their own personal clickers, which look like small remote controls. Depending on the settings, the results of the question are then displayed on the slide. No one will know whether you got the question right or wrong so you don’t have to be afraid to respond! You also can see whether you are in sync with the rest of your classmates.

Finding Legal Apps

The following article was published by School of Law Research & Electronic Services Librarian, Alyssa Thurston. The original post can be found at the Law Library publication View from the Library

Apps just aren’t for finding a new place to eat or improving your Words with Friends score. The past several years have seen the development of a staggering array of apps designed specifically for lawyers and legal researchers. Using apps, you can do everything from supplementing your bar exam study to annotating PDF documents and monitoring jurors during trial – all from your tablet or smartphone.

With all of the legal apps out there these days, how to get started with finding one that works for you? A recent article, “Good Apps Aren’t Hard to Find: Resources for Finding Legal Apps”, lists several resources for locating legal apps. App stores, legal technology blogs, and legal content providers such as Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law are all great starting points. Check out the article for more information and to start APP-lying your legal technology skills!
