Fresno State has again chosen iClicker as the university supported student response system.

Continuing iClicker users!! If you still have a BLACK base (and not a white one) please contact JoLynne (jblake@csufresno.edu) to get a new one!!

Steps for using them in a face-to-face class:

  1. Contact the Kennel Bookstore to let them know you will be using them
  2. Go to iclicker.com and download iClicker Cloud. You can also download the iClicker Cloud app for instructors.
  3. Create your iClicker Cloud account.
  4. Decide if you will allow clickers only, mobile devices only, or a combination in your course. Give your students the option of purchasing the bundled iClicker2 plus 5 year access to REEF polling from the Kennel bookstore
  5. Students will also need to create their iClicker Cloud account by going to https://www.iclicker.com/ and selecting 'Create an Account' > Student or registering through the link you provide in your Blackboard course.
  6. Contact JoLynne Blake (jblake@csufresno.edu) in the Center for Faculty Excellence if you need assistance

  • “Current practices frequently require students to purchase multiple devices that many times are used for one class and then not used again.”
  • “Standardization of such devices on individual campuses would serve to reduce student costs while improving Information Technology support services to students.”
