Before students are ready to participate in a polling session, they must create a student account and choose to add your class to their active course list.

Depending on your situation, you can direct students to perform these steps prior to arriving to class. Alternatively, you can take time in class to guide students through the process. 

1. Provide students with your course information.

Share the course information and institution name with your students. You can find the course details on the Course Dashboard window shown above.

2. Instruct students to create an account.

Detailed instructions are available for students to create an account using the iClicker Reef student web or iOS app. Students should only create and use one account for all of their courses.

3. Direct students to add your course.

Refer students to these steps to add a course. Once students have added your course, it is a simple process for them to join a session during class.

4. Provide instructions for your students to purchase subscription time.

Upon creating an account, students are granted a free 14-day trial to use Reef. Students must purchase subscription time to continue using Reef services beyond this trial period, or if they have purchased a new iClicker remote can use their complimentary 6 month Reef access code.
