Clickers are a great way for professors to gather instantaneous feedback from students without introducing too much disruption into a lecture. They can be used to assess pre- and post-lesson knowledge, provide a springboard for class discussion, and collect attendance information.
Why Use iClicker?
iClicker comes with numerous advantages. It is simple to set up and use, and its software can be used with any program or web page on your computer. Faculty have the option to have students use Clicker2 remotes or mobile devices.
In addition to ease of use, iClicker comes with a much lower total cost of ownership than some other systems. A student’s initial purchase price is the only cost associated with iClicker remote or Reef subscription and there are no recurring fees. The decision is up to the instructor to allow mobile device instead of a remote. Be sure to verify with your instructor before making this purchase.
Clicker Software Downloads
The software should be installed on the instructors personal network drive (H) so that they can access the results in their office and the classroom.
- iClicker Windows Folio Integrated

The set up for iClicker Cloud occurs directly on the iClicker website and then is added to your Folio Course. Before using the iClicker Cloud version in the classroom be sure that the software is installed on the instructor station. If not please submit a request to the Service Desk for installation.

FAQs for Instructors
Which clicker do we use at Georgia Southern?
The campus standard is iClicker.
How do I register my clicker?
iClicker is fully integrated with Folio so that registration can be done quickly and easily from within the Folio course page.
Instructors add the iClicker registration link for their Folio course.
How do I change my iClicker channels?
To avoid possible interference across classes, each classroom on campus will be assigned a clicker frequency such as AA or AB on the iClicker Base.
- Instructors can set this frequency when initially setting up the course, and the settings will remain for the entire semester.
- For students, instructions for setting a clicker frequency are on the back of each iClicker–along with instructions for everything you need to know for general clicker use!
