  • You don't want to spend thousands on clickers ?

Project history: VotAR is a personal initiative that I develop on my free time since early 2013. But it's based on the Unité Ingénierie des Contenus et Savoirs that the Université de Technologie de Compiègne has studied: the pedagogical use of clickers and their significant cost
