Get Started with iClicker

Bookmark this page for easy access to resources.

Based on your selections, we recommend that you use our iClicker Cloud software with LMS integration, while your students will use either our iClicker Reef mobile app or iClicker remotes.

Let's get started!

Step 1: Request your instructor's kit

Request an instructor kit to get a receiver, an instructor’s remote, and a student clicker delivered in 7-10 business days.

Step 2: Notify the bookstore

Each semester you’ll need to notify the bookstore (just as you do for textbooks), so they may order the appropriate inventory for your class. Here are your choices of ISBNs. We recommend letting them know that you’re allowing your students to participate using the iClicker Reef mobile application too, so they don’t order too many clickers.

Students/participants will have a free 14-day iClicker Reef trial and will then need to purchase a subscription to continue using it to answer polls.

Step 3: Prepare your students/participants

Read through these instructions to learn how your students/participants need to register properly for your course.

This article has the resources you need to prepare your students/participants to participate in your iClicker sessions, including template language for your syllabus and a presentation to share with your students on the first day of class.

Step 4: Download iClicker Cloud software onto your office computer AND the classroom computer

Setup your own student account: We recommend also having a student account for yourself. You do not need to create one. Simply sign into the student app using the same credentials that you created for your instructor’s account. Students or participants automatically get a 2-week free trial. If you need an extension for yourself, just contact tech support.

Step 5: Select how you want to integrate with your LMS

Before beginning this step, check with your LMS Administrator or IT Department to ensure your LMS has been set up to communicate with iClicker Cloud.
