Software Design (CSC480/HCI521) group
project
Date: Wednesday, May 10
Time: 2:00 - 3:00 pm
Livestream: https://goo.gl/1Vhv2s
The objective of this year’s project was to create a classroom clicker software called “Laker Polling.”

Laker Polling is a free, software-only polling system, which runs entirely in the browser, on regular computers as well as mobile devices. It allows for relatively simple class roster management and keeps track of attendance automatically. Instructors can choose to run polls live in class, show live results, or assign polls as “homework” quizzes. 

The presentation will feature a discussion of the development process, the system’s capabilities, and will feature a live demo.
