iClicker End-of-life Summer 2019
Posted by Dave Laurie on 23 November 2018 02:21 PM

Attention iClicker users,

Starting in July 2019, iClicker will no longer be supported as a student response system (SRS) at the University of Alberta. iClicker base stations will be removed from labs and classrooms and technical support for iClickers will no longer be provided by IST.

This decision has been made based off of feedback to replace iClicker with a web accessible system that is free to use, integrated with eClass, and does not require students to purchase a separate device.

Until the decommissioning occurs, all existing iClicker users will continue to have full support and access to existing base stations.

To replace iClicker, IST will now be supporting ePoll, a fully online, free-to-use SRS that is already available and being used by a number of early adopters. ePoll has gone through several rounds of architectural and feature improvements and provides a full range of student response system features.

For full documentation about using ePoll, please view this article.

Anyone with questions about this change can contact us for more information at eclass@ualberta.ca.

Regards,
IST eClass Support
