The latest release of i>Clicker classroom software is now available for download.
If you are a current or prospective user of the student response system from i>Clicker, please download the latest release (v 7.9 for PC, v7.10 for Mac) for spring of 2017. Recent changes to Apple’s OS version 10.12 and 10.12.2 require that supporting files for Blackboard* and Canvas* integration be added after the software has been validated. The steps for doing so are included in the installation instructions available as a download file.
Information Technology Services Learning Spaces offers full support for a new Student Response System. The i>clicker2 hardware is installed and ready to use in select general purpose classrooms. Because of its portability and rapid setup, any instructor interested in using this technology may review the information provided on this page. If you will be teaching in a room that is not equipped with the i>clicker2 hardware, using the instructor kit (provided at no charge) will allow implementation anywhere that a laptop computer can be used.
i>clicker 7.9-7.10 are now available for download. The latest release allows faculty to use the new and improved mobile solution, REEF Polling by i>clicker—is fully supported and may be used concurrently with the clicker device in the classroom.
Here are just some of the benefits of REEF Polling:
- Quick and easy setup
- Send questions with images to your students’ devices
- Students respond with any smart device via web browser or iOS app (Android app coming soon!)
- Students can view session history to use as a study guide outside of class
In addition to the mobile product transition, i>clicker 7.9:
- Supports integrations with UNL Blackboard
- Offers improved reporting through Excel exports
- Enables instructors to update their software for future releases simply by running “Check for Update” right from the software
Not only is it affordable, but the polling software can be used with any presentation notes, software or websites that you want to use as part of your instruction. Questions can be asked aloud, on the fly with no preparation. i>clicker captures a screen shot with every question to associate your questions with the poll results. One click Blackboard support for grading, rapid reliable data collection, Mac and PC compatibility and options for a variety of answer types make this a solid instructional tool.
If you are considering the use of this technology, be sure to inform the University Bookstore that you wish to use the clickers for your class. Training and support will be offered during the Power Classroom sessions provided by ITS prior to the start of the semester. Company representatives will also be attending to provide creative methods to incorporate clickers in your instructional material.
Learning Spaces is excited about this change in student response systems. We are confident that it will become an adaptive tool that lets you teach and gather feedback from your students, involve students in each other’s success and create a collaborative atmosphere that inspires inquisitive thought and deep learning success.
