This is a set of short, well-produced videos about effective use of personal response systems ("clickers") for student engagement and formative assessment. These videos give an inside look at clickers being used in the classroom and teacher and student opinions about them.

Videos about clickers

Following is a series of short (5-10 minute) well-produced videos about classroom response systems, or "clickers" -- why to use them, what research supports their use, and tips for implementing them successfully. All videos, and supporting materials, are also available on our website, at STEMclickers.colorado.edu

1. anatomy of a clicker question

Just what is a clicker? This video will give you a brief snapshot of what a clicker question look like in the classroom, from start to finish.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
