The iClicker Moodle plug-in allows a seamless integration of data between Moodle and iClicker’s integrated gradebook. Communication with the Moodle plug-in:
- Enables students to register their iClicker remotes directly within Moodle
- Allows you to easily download your class roster and student registrations from Moodle
- Allows you to easily upload your iClicker scores into Moodle's gradebook
Integration with the Moodle plug-in requires some set up and authentication work from your Moodle administrator prior to your use of the application. Your Moodle administrator should have already done the following:
- Added a link in your LMS that your students can use to register their iClicker remotes
- Provided you with a customer version of iClicker Classic that is pre-configured to communicate with your Moodle plug-in
Follow the steps below to complete the integration process:
- Video: iClicker Integrate with Moodle
- Step 1: Configure Your iClicker Software
- Step 2: Enable Student Registration Mode in Moodle
- Step 3: Synchronize Your Roster
- Step 4: Upload Your iClicker Polling Data
- Step 5: Review iClicker Scores in Moodle
