17 September 2014: Gamification of Clickers with BYOD
This session was part of the joint eAssessment Scotland and Transforming Assessment online conference, 8 to 19 September 2014.
Presenters: Paul Lam and Kevin Wong, Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Hosted by Prof Geoffrey Crisp, Dean T&L, RMIT University and Dr Mathew Hillier, University of Queensland, Australia starting 07:00AM UST/GMT. Duration 52 Minutes.
This session explored a home-grown web-based 'clicker' system (called uReply) developed at CUHK for students to easily answer teachers' questions on their mobile devices in the classroom. The tool has attracted a significant amount of usage and it seems to have effectively facilitated interactions in many classes. The next phase of the tool is the Activity module which simply-speaking 'repackages' the Q&A into game-like in-class activities, such as 'group competition' and 'level challenge'. We hope that this new gamification element would lead to even more student engagement in class. The session included a practical demonstration of the system and collated audience reactions to the various games planned for the next release. uReply works through a browser or via iOS and Android Apps.
