The iClicker Classic settings allow you to enable iClicker Reef for your class. Students can then use their laptop or smartphone with the iClicker Reef app to respond to polls in your class.

When Reef is enabled, the software allows you to start or resume a session without an attached base station. However, without a base, students cannot vote using physical clickers and you cannot use an instructor remote.

Go to the Mobile tab of your Course Settings

In this tab, click Enable.

or create an account

Sign-in with your existing iClicker account or click Create Account if you do not already have one.

Enter your information and click Create. The Institution and Name you enter will be the same information your students search for to find your course. You can also select a Primary Discipline.

Enter your Course Details for Reef students

Enter your course information and click Create. All of the information you enter here can be seen by students in their Reef apps. We recommend filling in as much information as possible. Entering both the required and optional information helps students find your correct course.

Be sure to carefully and accurately select the End Date. When the End Date is reached, the course will automatically be archived for students using Reef. Students already enrolled in the course will still be able to access their information, but new students will no longer be able to find it or add it once it is archived. 

Note: You can choose to allow Reef students to view screenshots of questions to review after each session has ended.


Review and save

Review the course details and then click Save. You can come back in later and Edit these settings or Disable iClicker Reef Student, if needed.


Important: Students need to enter their student ID as it appears in your roster into their Reef profiles. If students do not enter their student ID in their Reef profile, they will not show as registered in your iClicker gradebook. They will appear as "Unknown Reef User" until they enter their student ID in Reef (and you synchronize your roster).
