iClicker FAQ

What is iClicker and iClicker Cloud?

iClicker and iClicker Cloud are tools designed to engage your students during synchronous instruction. iClickers are physical remotes that allow students to provide real-time, multiple-choice answers to questions that you pose in class. iClicker Cloud is the mobile version, where instead of a physical remote, students are able to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). We offer both solutions to cater to the needs of faculty and the way they wish to teach. iClicker and iClicker Cloud are traditionally used to:

  • Provide all students with a voice while distance learning

  • Assess student understanding in real-time

  • Diversify student feedback with a variety of question formats (including Target and Anonymous polling questions)

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

  • Track attendance and student participation

Note: Remote students will need iClicker Cloud, as the physical remotes only work when in the classroom.

How do my students get access to iClicker or iClicker Cloud?

If you have opted to use a physical remote, please have your students visit the circulation desk within Bertrand Library to request a remote. Important: students will need their Bucknell ID to check out the remote, which needs to be returned at the end of the semester.

If you would like to try out iClicker Cloud with your students, please direct them to download the REEF app for their respective mobile device. Alternatively, students may use their laptop to participate using the iClicker web app.
