iClicker FAQ

What is iClicker Cloud?

iClicker Cloud replaces our former iClicker system that required dedicated remotes and a physical receiver to record student responses to in-class questions.  Like other student response systems, iClicker Cloud is designed to engage your students during synchronous instruction. With iClicker Cloud, students are able to "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD). In other words, students can use a mobile phone (with the iClicker app) or a computer (logging in to a student account on the iClicker Website) to respond to clicker questions, and the students don't all have to be in a physical classroom to participate.  We have purchased an institutional site license for iClicker so that faculty members and students can use the software without needing to pay a subscription fee.  "Audience Response Software" like iClicker Cloud is traditionally used to:

  • Assess student understanding in real-time

  • Increase student engagement in class

  • Track attendance and student participation

The cloud version of iClicker also allows faculty members to:

  • Diversify student feedback with a variety of question formats

  • Uncover ‘muddiest points’ post-class via Exit Polls
