The iClicker Polling System

The iClicker Polling system can be used in a classroom to easily get responses from all your students.  After being asked a question and a given a set of possible responses, each student can use their remote to enter the response they think is correct.  Once everyone has responded, it is possible to display a graph of how the class answered.

This guide will demonstrate the basic functions of the iClicker system.  It will demonstrate how to set up the system and begin polling your students.  Additionally, instructions will be given on how to set up an instructor's remote.

To learn about using other features of the iClicker system not discussed in this libguide, you can download and consult the user manuals available here.

Additional training can also be found here.  Training on advanced features can be found here.
