How do I get started using iClicker?

There are a variety of resources available for instructors who wish to use iClicker in their classroom. The iClicker website is a good starting point for learning more about how iClicker works and how to set up iClicker Cloud software. In addition, please feel free to send an email to iclickers@missouri.edu to set up a one-on-one consultation about using iClicker in your classroom. A staff member from Course Design & Technology will be happy to give you a demo and help you set up your iClicker course.

How much will iClicker cost my students?

MU has purchased a site license for iClicker. Your students will not be charged to use iClicker, nor will they need to subscribe to the iClicker service. This is a free tool for the students to use.
UMSL and UMKC students will have to pay a fee.

Will my students know how iClicker works?

iClicker has a user guide for students which will walk them through how to get their account created. This is a new process from previous semesters, students do NOT have to click on anything in Canvas as they once did. 

Does iClicker integrate with Canvas?

Yes, iClicker integrates with Canvas (the University of Missouri's learning management software). When you are ready to sync your iClicker scores/points with your Canvas gradebook, it is as easy as clicking a button. Within minutes, your iClicker scores will populate in your Canvas gradebook. For instructions on how to set up the iClicker/Canvas gradebook sync, please follow this guide.

What programs does iClicker work with?

You can use iClicker with any presentation software that you'd like, webpage, computer program or any other program that you choose. The unobtrusive iClicker toolbar floats in front of your application, enabling you to poll your students at any point during your presentation (or at a particular question/stopping point in your lecture). Each time you enable polling, iClicker takes a picture of your screen (i.e., your polling question) for your later review of the question/responses. It will also send that question to your students' devices (if you choose to allow that).

Who do I contact if I have questions or if I need help?

Please feel free to reach out to a Missouri Online staff member should you have questions about using iClicker or if you would like a one-on-one consultation. The iClicker website is another good starting point for instructors that need help or have questions getting things set up for class.

Please email iclickers@missouri.edu or call Missouri Online at 855-675-0755
