Polling @ McGill (also known as the Student Response System or SRS, or previously known as clickers) is a technology-supported questioning strategy to assess students’ learning and encourage active classroom participation. At McGill, we are using a web-based polling system, called TurningPoint Cloud. During a class with polling questions, students respond from their personal device (smartphone, tablet, or laptop).
