Inclusive Learning Environment

UNLV has two student response system solutions, both of which offer robust features and integration with WebCampus.
iClicker is a classroom response system that allows you to ask questions on the fly. Students submit responses in real time using an iClicker remote or the Reef mobile app. You can display the results instantly to your students or save them for later.
Top Hat is a student engagement system that promotes active learning in and outside of the lecture hall. Students use their own device to participate in discussions, quizzes, and polls. Other features include interactive slides, graded questions, and videos.
You are required to disclose that students must purchase technology (i.e., iClicker remote, iClicker Reef student license, Top Hat subscription) in addition to their tuition and fees in your MyUNLV course description prior to students registering for the class. Learn More >>
