iClicker Cloud uses Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) version 1.1 standards to publish scores from students' iClicker Reef accounts to the LMS gradebook with a single click. This integration is an alternative to the manual export/import process with external CSV files. Before instructors can use this functionality, an LMS admin must first enable iClicker as an external tool. This requires a quick, one-time set-up.

1. Contact an iClicker Tech Account Manager
Setting up the iClicker Cloud external tool requires a tool launch URL, Key, and Secret. An iClicker Tech Account Manager will provide you with this information, walk you through the set-up process, and answer any questions you might have about the integration. Contact an iClicker Tech Account Manager at: support@iclicker.com

2. Prepare your LMS
iClicker Cloud’s grade sync integration is fully LTI 1.1 compliant and should work with any platform that supports the LTI standard.

3. Inform your Faculty
Once you have prepared your LMS, notify the instructors at your campus that they can access iClicker Cloud’s external tool. To access details on how instructors complete the set-up for their courses and synchronize their student scores, see the help article The Synchronization Process: An Overview.
