Creating an iClicker Reef account is free. Please check with your instructor to ensure that they are allowing Reef to be used in their classes before purchasing a subscription. Also, take advantage of the two week free trial to make sure that Reef is the right choice for you. Click on the screenshot to watch our short video or follow the steps below.
