      Description

      As more and more schools are now looking for integrating clickers with Moodle LMS, I think it's time for Moodle HQ to seriously consider develop such plugin (could be in a form or block, or integrate with the current "choice" module. I did a search on the 3rd party Modules and plugins database on moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?id=6009 and here in this tracker, but didn't find any.

      Some of the most popular "clickers" are:

      eInstruction CPS (http://www.einstruction.com/products/student-response-systems)
      TurningPoint - seems to have some sort of Moodle integration done: http://www.turningtechnologies.com/studentresponsesystems/lmscontentintegration/

      Thanks!

          I think this is a terrific idea and have been searching for possible ways to use clickers (or smartphones/ipods/etc) in a classroom environment and have the results register in Moodle's gradebook.

          We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
