Integrating iClicker Cloud with Webcourses@UCF

  1. iClicker Cloud does not require you to download a special version of UCF software, nor does it require you to carry a flash drive to class. You may simply download a free version from the iClicker website using one of the links below. However, note that you will want to download a version of it onto both your office/personal computer AND the classroom computer.
  2. Request that the iClicker Cloud software be downloaded onto the classroom computer.
  3. Put a ticket into Webcourses support to request that the iClicker Reef LTI be added to your course.
    • Once set up in webcourses, follow these instructions to set up integration in your Canvas course.
  4. General getting started resources
  5. Sample syllabus template
  6. Student registration notice: ALL students MUST create an iClicker Reef account in order to register - no matter whether they’re using an iClicker remote* or the iClicker Reef mobile app. This is somewhat different that what typical iClicker students are used to, so make sure to stress this in your syllabus.

    *iClicker users will not have to pay for their iClicker Reef account for registration only. However, they can pay if they want to be able to log into iClicker Reef after class to view questions asked in class and statistics (such as points earned per question, attendance, etc).
