Fresno State has again chosen iClicker as the university supported student response system.
Steps for using them in a face-to-face class:
- Contact the Kennel Bookstore to let them know you will be using them
- Go to iclicker.com and download iClicker Cloud. You can also download the iClicker Cloud app for instructors.
- Create your iClicker Cloud account.
- 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
- 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.
- Contact JoLynne Blake (email@example.com) 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.”
