  • View in full screen mode
  • Check to see if your campus has customized iClicker documentation, instructions, and support before proceeding.
  • Gather all the materials you need: an iClicker base receiver, the latest software, your (blue) instructor’s remote, and the Quick Start Guides (you may have obtained these from your IT group). The software, Quick Start Guides, User Guides, and other helpful guides are available at www.iclicker.com and on the iClicker flash drive that came with your iClicker base receiver.
  • Confirm that you comply with the iClicker Classic system requirements as detailed in the User Guide for the system of the software you are using.
  • Confirm that your bookstore or department has ordered the proper number of student remotes for your course enrollment.
  • Attend a training session on your campus or register for an online training.
  • Note the iClicker support contact information. Support is available 5 days a week: 9AM to 11 PM EST Mon-Thu and 9 AM to 9 PM EST on Fri.
  • Prepare or copy/paste your iClicker Classic questions in the application of your choice to incorporate them into your lecture. You can use any application, including but not limited to: PowerPoint, Keynote, Adobe, Word, Notepad, XML, etc.
  • Create an iClicker Classic course for each course in which you will be using the software.
  • Set your course preferences from the Course Settings section of the iClicker Classic application’s Welcome screen. You must repeat this step for every course.
  • Enable your instructor remote by entering the remote ID (found on the back of the remote) in the Instructor’s Remote ID field found in the General Tab of Course Settings. Pull the tab from the battery compartment before use (advise your students to do the same).
  • Determine if there will be other iClicker users near your classroom(s); if so, you will need to set your frequency to a frequency other than AA in Course Settings on the General tab. When you begin polling, iClicker Classic will alert your students to the frequency.
  • Save or copy/paste student rosters for each class into the sub-folder within the Classes folder. Consult the User Guide to learn about proper formatting for your course roster. If you are using a Learning Management System (LMS), consult the relevant user documentation (available at www.iclicker.com) to learn how to obtain your roster from your campus LMS. See this article for information on how to Create and Add Your Roster.
  • Decide if you will allow your students to use their smart devices and/or laptops to vote with the iClicker Reef Student Application instead of an iClicker remote. There are multiple considerations to this decision; discuss with your IT group and your iClicker technology specialist before you decide.
  • Add iClicker Classic registration instructions to your syllabus so your students follow the proper registration protocol. Please see the User Guide for Registration Options.
