iClicker Reminders for New Semester

Here are a few reminders as you get your course up and running to use iclickers:

  1. Only install iClicker software from our website CTL. It has special settings for UVM and Blackboard. Link to iClicker page on CTL website
  2. Check for updates to iClicker software before syncing your roster with your course in Blackboard.
  3. Make sure your course is available in Blackboard before trying to sync the first time.
  4. Review this post for iClicker Gotchas Link to iClicker Gotchas post.
  5. Have your students register their iClickers (and REEF) through Blackboard (after logging in), but before clicking on the course.
  6.  Back up your classes folder in iClicker often. Like every week or so. You can write over the old folder if it is for the same course.
