Concerns when teaching large classes include fostering community and measuring comprehension of material. Use of student response systems (clickers) encourages student interaction fostering greater connectedness while providing instructors with information about student understanding. Lecture capture software can also be used to record class presentations for student review. This presentation will explore the effects of clickers and lecture capture software on students’ attitudes toward a large enrollment Introduction to American Politics course and grade outcomes. The findings both inform the use of technology in large enrollment sections and provide insight into the efficacy of these devices in classrooms of any size.
