Useful tool for classroom use but ease of use is initially low
Puntos a favor: iClicker allows for a more engaging classroom experience between students and teachers. I strongly feel that utilizing this resource in classes creates a stronger learning experience and greatly benefits students during lectures.
Contras: Many professors struggle with adapting to this software. While it is useful and easy once you get the hang of it, the initial understanding of the program seems to take some time with staff.

More engaged students
Puntos a favor: It helps students become more engaged in class and to help reinforce concepts. It is a good way to check for understanding of the materials.
Contras: It is a little expensive for students to purchase the iClickers because students have to have their own individual clickers in class. Responses are only limited to multiple choice questions and cannot enter in free response.

Made the classroom interesting
Puntos a favor: This was great technology for the classroom. They were cheap and easy to use, both for students and professors. It made classes interactive and good for going over possible test questions and hypotheticals. Good for debate and collaboration.
Contras: Out of classes of hundreds of people, maybe a few clickers went bad. Could have been the battery life.

Great tool to learn with or vote with
Puntos a favor: I like that you can create any type of questions to use the iClicker system with. You can use this as an educational tool to help quiz people on questions that they should know and memorize or simply use it as a voting tool for surveys.
Contras: The software itself is okay but the Clicker itself is a little expensive since every single person needs one to participate.

iClicker: Basic functionality, not much else
Puntos a favor: There are multiple ways to engage with students using this. The remotes themselves, while they function well, are pricey and very basic in their use. Other methods of engagement such as through the app are better.
Contras: Functionality is very basic with the remote, especially for the cost of the product. For something as expensive as it is I would like more functionality than just a few buttons for responses.

Puntos a favor:
- allows for testing of knowledge within a large group/class (like Kahoot, but better)
- provides immediate feedback regarding responses
- allows for different options of multiple choice questions or short answer
Contras: - pausing the lecture to vote takes away from class time, using time and energy to reconnect to iClicker and vote

Puntos a favor: fantastic software, my teacher uses this in my microbiology class to see how many students in the class know the content after teaching
Contras: people complain about the internet connectivity because it sometimes disconnects after we don't use it for a long time and then we miss answering the question

Puntos a favor: this software was used for my microbiology course where students would be quizzed on certain concepts/topics throughout the lecture, which was very useful
Contras: often the connection whether via PC or mobile device would cut out randomly and sometimes i would miss answering the question

Puntos a favor: i like how this software provides a neat, succinct bar graph for the percentages of people that chose a particular question
Contras: i don't like how the mobile application lags more than using the software on a laptop
