U of A iClicker Policies

Article Last Updated July 2019

Please note that ePoll is now available - a free, web-based student response system. iClickers will no longer be centrally supported at the U of A starting in July 2019. For more information, please review the following update from 2018 - Link.

If instructors wish to use iClickers to allocate participation marks, the Office of the Vice Provost (IT) recommends that students either create Canadian accounts, or use the IST hosted local web registration system so that no student information is stored in the US. The service can be accessed directly via courses in eClass where students can enter their iClicker remote serial number (from the back of their clicker).

A detailed guide on how the setup for student-clicker registration is available here: Linking i>clicker Responses to Students (Registration)

At this time (since no Privacy Information Assessment has been completed), the U of A does not officially support using the iClicker REEF or iClicker Cloud web-based registration system. Some instructors have proceeded with this anyway by contacting i>clicker Client Services Support directly: support@iclicker.com. Note that it is NOT possible to use the REEF system in conjunction with the U of A's local registration database. If instructors choose to run REEF and they offer students the choice of using physical remotes, those students can register their clicker by creating a free REEF account. Instructors opting to do this should be familiar with the VPTL December 2014 recommendations on the use of 3rd party homework tools: Using Third Party Homework Tools within eClass.
