iClicker Information for Students

Overview:

iClicker is an audience response tool that tracks attendance, increases participation, facilitates quizzes and measures performance. You can participate using either an iClicker remote, mobile device or laptop, depending on your instructor's classroom policies. iClicker remotes can be purchased in-store at the WVU Bookstore or WVU Book Exchange. You can also purchase them on Amazon or the Macmillan Learning Student Store. Once you receive your iClicker remote, you must register it within eCampus. If you are using a mobile device, you must download the iClicker Reef app for iOS or Android and purchase a Reef subscription. You can also respond by signing into your iClicker Reef account online.

How to Register an iClicker Remote in eCampus:

Most students at WVU should register their iClicker remote through WVU eCampus. You will only have to register your remote once, even if you'll be using it in multiple classes.

  1. Log into eCampus and select the course for which you'll be using iClicker.
  2. Find the link in the course to register your clicker.
    • Look on the course homepage, the course information page and in the course menu on the left. Most instructors add a link in one or more of those locations.
    • If a "Register your iClicker" link is not obvious in any of those locations, click on Tools in the course menu and select i>clicker Student Registration from the list of choices (it will be near the bottom of the list of available tools).
    • If this instructor has removed the Tools menu item from the course menu, switch to another course.
  3. Enter the 8 digit number from the back of your remote (below the bar code) in the Remote ID box. This is also where you can remove an old iClicker remote registration, if you are no longer that remote.
    Note: If your clicker number has 10 digits instead of eight, contact iClicker support at 1-866-209-5689 or support@iclicker.com.

How to Create an iClicker Reef Account and Purchase a Subscription:

If you will be using a mobile device or laptop to respond in class, you must create an iClicker Reef student account and purchase a subscription.

  1. Go to app.reef-education.com/#/account/create.
  2. Select West Virginia University as your institution and enter your information.
  3. Find your course by entering its name or your instructor's name, then click Add This Course.
  4. Once you've added your course, click the hamburger menu in the top-left corner and select Subscriptions. Purchase the subscription of your choice.

How to Register an iClicker Remote at iclicker.com (if your instructor doesn't use eCampus):

If you take a course where the instructor is not using WVU eCampus to manage the student roster and sync grades:

  1. Go to iclicker.com/register-a-remote.
  2. If you haven't done so already, create an iClicker Reef account. 
  3. Once you have an account and you're signed in, go to the Profile and click the "Register Remotes" link at the bottom. Complete the form. The Remote ID is the 8 digit number on the back of your clicker, below the bar code.
  4. For more information about your iClicker remote, go to iclicker.com/students/apps-and-remotes/remotes.
