Blicker is the result of evaluating the different classroom response solutions out there in the market.
Blicker seeks to eliminate all their disadvantages and combining all their benefits. Blicker is the Teacher’s best tool to solicit the student’s responses. There is no set-up required, no need for additional gadget, no physical props required, no QR codes, no need for Teacher to scan QR code, and very importantly NO NEED for any internet connectivity. In fact, the only requirement that is needed is what most students would already have with them – A Smartphone.
All the student needed is to download the Free Blicker Student App on their Smart Phone or on their notebook. The app uses the new Bluetooth Low Energy Technology to transmit small data packets containing the student selected responses into the air. As there is no setup or any internet connectivity needed, all the student would need to response is to tap on their desired responses and the Blicker Teacher App will immediately show all the consolidated results in a dashboard. There is absolutely no need for any internet or sign up
In the Anonymous Mode, the students will feel at ease to know that his responses remains anonymous. In the Identity Mode, the student's unique Identity will be sent along with his/her response. The teacher will then be able to know individual student's response to the questions. The teacher can also make use of Blicker to take class attendance. In the Attendance Mode, the teacher can now automate the attendance marking with timestamp recorded and even export to an excel file.
A little bit of technicality here on the Blicker App. The Blicker Student App uses the new Bluetooth Low Energy Advertisement protocol. There is NO NEED for any cumbersome Bluetooth pairing with the Blicker Teacher App. As Bluetooth Low Energy technology is being used, this app actually consumes very low energy. Despite this, the technology allows the Blicker Student App and the Blicker Teacher App to be as far as 75 meters apart. Also, technically, the Blicker Teacher App is capable to consolidate results from hundreds of Blicker Student Apps.
Blicker for Teacher also comes with over 20+ teaching tools such as QR code generation, content sharing, automated groupings, automated scheduling, inspirational screensavers and many many more. In this way, the teacher can simply use blicker and no longer need to rely on any other third party online tools.
