    Abstract:

    The implementation of clickers and clicker questions into classroom teaching is a well-established active-learning technique that provides more interactive classrooms and engages students with course content. Throughout the years, however, the actual clickers themselves have undergone an evolution from physical hand-held devices to web-based applications. This review explores the general advantages and disadvantages of two-main clicker styles, dedicated physical devises and web enabled clickers.
