iClicker Information for Students

Overview:

iClicker is a student response tool that makes it easy for your instructors to track attendance, increase participation, facilitate quizzes and measure performance. Student responses are instantly recorded, and grades can be synced with eCampus. You can respond to questions in class using an iClicker remote, mobile device or laptop, depending on your instructor's classroom policies.

iClicker remotes can be purchased at the Morgantown WVU Bookstore or 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.

If you plan on using a mobile device instead, you must download the iClicker Reef app for iOS or Android, create an account 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:

To ensure that all of your iClicker responses are recorded, you must register your remote in 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 a course in which you'll be using iClicker.
  2. Find the iClicker remote registration link.
    • Look for the link on the course homepage, course information page and course menu.
    • 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.
  3. Enter the 8-digit number found on the back of the device (below the barcode) in the Remote ID box. This is also where you can remove an old iClicker remote registration.
    Note: If your remote's ID 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 if your Instructor Doesn't Use eCampus:

If your instructor is requiring you to use iClicker in class but doesn’t have an eCampus course, you can register your remote on iClicker’s website. Your remote’s ID is on the back of the device, below the barcode.

  1. Go to iclicker.com/register-a-remote.
  2. Select the iClicker software version your instructor is using.
  3. Select My institution does not use an LMS. You will see a specific set of instructions based on the software version you selected.
    • If you selected iClicker Cloud, sign into your iClicker Reef account to register your remote. If you don't have an account, create one at https://app.reef-education.com/#/account/create. Once you're signed in, click the menu at the top and select Profile. Click Register Remotes and click the plus sign at the top. Enter your Remote ID and click Save.
    • If you selected iClicker Classic, complete the remote registration form.
