Created by educators, for educators
iClicker was developed by educators to solve specific learning challenges. We asked our founders from the University of Illinois how iClicker got its start, and the problems it continues to solve.
"Students have responded very positively towards the use of iClicker in my classes. iClicker solved the problem of not knowing where students need help and what their biggest misunderstandings are. I knew that iClicker would allow me to formatively assess classes throughout each session, but initially, I did not know that this tool could be used to communicate back and forth between myself and students. iClicker opened up a line of communication that completely changed the dynamics of my classes."
"I previously used Polleverywhere.com and Socrative. I decided to try iClicker once I found out that iClicker was the easiest to setup and that it automatically records attendance and awards points for participation and correct answers. Students really appreciate how iClicker saves each polling session in their accounts."
"Every topic I teach is more easily mastered because of iClicker. However, one of the topics that I really enjoy using iClicker for are chemical nomenclature in my Introductory Chemistry class. I really like using iClicker for numeric problems like unit conversions and stoichiometry. In my statistics course, iClicker allows me to collect data for studies and share student responses with the entire class."
"iClicker allows me to take attendance instantly as well as conduct polls, questions, and send students information (solutions to problems, websites, etc). I don't have to rely on the 1-2 vocal students to gauge the pulse of the class. I now know how almost every student is doing or what topics they each are having difficulty with. I periodically give graded quizzes via iClicker. It reduces prep and grading time for those activities."
