When can I check out a clicker?
Yale college students enrolled in classes using clickers may checked them out from the Bass Library circulation desk. The circulation desk is open Mon-Thurs 8:30 am – 11:45 pm, Friday 8:30 am – 9:45 pm, Saturday 10 am – 6:45 pm, Sun Noon – 11:45 pm.
Where do I return my clicker?
Clickers should only be returned to the circulation desk in the Bass Library (formerly CCL). Please do NOT return clickers in library drop boxes or at other libraries as this may result in damage or loss. If your clicker is lost or damaged you will be responsible for the full recovery fee.
I’m taking two classes that use clickers. Do I need more than one clicker?
You only need one clicker. Your clicker will work in all of the Yale College classes that use clickers.
How do I use my clicker?
Each clicker has 12 buttons used for different functions. See Key for descriptors.
How do I change the channel number on the clicker?
By default the clicker is set to channel 41, however, this can be inadvertently changed. To reset the channel back to 41, do the following:
- Press and release the Ch button.
- As the light flashes red and green, press the “4” button and then the “1” button until the light turns amber.
- Press the Ch button again until the light turns green.
- Press and release the “1” button. The light should flash amber to confirm.
- Verify the channel number at the top of the LCD screen.
Note: Most faculty will use channel 41 unless otherwise instructed.
I don’t think my clicker is working
If nothing is displaying on the LCD of the clicker, the battery might be dead. Return the clicker to the Bass Library circulation desk in exchange for a new one.
If green or red lights flash consistently, but you still think your responses aren’t being registered, your clicker may not be set to the right channel (Channel 41). To reset the channel click the Ch button, press 4 then 1, and then press Ch again. Your clicker will flash green if the channel has been reset.
What if I lose my clicker?
Visit the Bass Library circulation desk. A new clicker clicker will be issued once the $65 replacement fee has been paid.
How do I register my clicker number?
Your instructor will provide you with a link to an online form where you enter the six-character number found on the back of your clicker. NOTE: Not every class using clickers requires this and you only need to do this if directed by your instructor.
