Those instructions are included in the "Downloads" section below.

What are iClickers?

 


 

 

iClickers are a classroom response system.  They are used by instructors in any size class to do polling on questions about course content, quiz students on concepts, and more.  Students purchase their iClicker from the Duck Store, or a friend who is no longer using their iClicker. Note: clickers cannot be shared by students during the same term.  Also, iClicker, from Macmillan, offers a classroom response system called Reef Polling, where students use their own devices to respond in class.  Reef Polling is not supported at the University of Oregon, as we do not have a license with Macmillan for Reef Polling.

How to get started with iClickers?

Make an appointment or stop in at the Educational Technology & Canvas Support Office, and one of our consultants will help with installing software on your laptop, and go through set-up of the software.  Also, you will learn how to manage the responses and add them to Canvas.  Educational Technology & Canvas Support will provide you with the clickers and base station to get you started.
