iClicker FAQ

What are 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). In other words, students can use a mobile phone (with the iClicker Reef app) or a compter to respond to clicker questions, and the students don't all have to be in a physical classroom to participate.  We offer both solutions to support the needs of faculty and the way they wish to teach. iClicker and iClicker Cloud are 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

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

Please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not using the physical iClicker remotes.  In future semesters, if you opt 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 use 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.  We currently have a site license for iClicker Cloud, so students do not need to pay a subscription fee.
